General Operating Fund
Applied toward hosting social events to bring currently-serving and former Barracks Officers together for bonding and camaraderie across the generations (we do not charge currently-serving officers for these events), and to pay other general operating expenses.
MBW 2022 Birthday Gala
To defray the costs of hosting the 22 January 2022 celebration of the Marine Barracks' birthday at the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Arlington, VA.
This event celebrates the founding of Marine Barracks, Washington, D. C., and the many generations of Marines who have served at The Oldest Post of the Corps. Because of COVID restrictions, the formal November 2021 USMC Birthday Ball was cancelled for a second year and young Barracks Marines again missed the experience of attending the unique and traditional ceremonial celebration of our Birthday. This formal MBW Birthday Gala is intended to make up for that missed special experience in the lives of our younger Marines, and a special audio/video presentation will highlight not only the history of Marine Barracks, but also the stories of many of those who are serving and have served.
