The United States Marine Corps birthday is celebrated every year on Nov. 10. This year's Commandant's Marine Corps Birthday Ball will be held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in National Harbor, Md. At the celebration, there is a traditional ball and a cake-cutting ceremony.

Sidney's Marine Birthday Ball originated three years ago when former Marine Nick Eddy attended a Marine ball in Kimball.
