2017 Marine Corps Law Enforcement Charity Event

The Marine Corps Law Enforcement foundation held its annual event at several locations in our area recently. Galloway Twp. Military Funeral Honor Guard, Last Salute, was extremely honored to be asked to participate. The event included multiple “Medal of Honor” recipients. These real life heroes from WWII and Vietnam travel from great distances to support the foundation. The event started with a dinner event in Atlantic City which featured the Marine Corps Drum & Bugle unit. The next day, the Absecon VFW hosted a “Medal of Honor” lunch and then on the final day, a fund raising golf tournament was held.
