The Scene

The Marine Corp captured the Armory during the Marine Corps Holiday Classic!

On the track it was a time for team relays. And on the side, it was a time for mingling with The Few and The Proud!
Athletes tested their physicall skills on the chin bar and learned more about serving the country in the Marine Corp.

As always in the Armory, the music and encouragement from announcers Ian Brooks and Mike Rauh kept the
place rocking and the fans on the edge of their seats.

It was, as usual, a Great Time for All!

Former Marines, Actor, Harvey Keitel (l) and Former New York City Mayor, David Dinkins
celebrate the Marines at the Armory.
