Coalition Forces celebrate Marine Corps 238th Birthday

Watkins (right) 379th Air Expeditionary Wing commander, watch the U.S. Marine Corps birthday message video at the 379th Air Expeditionary Wing during the U.S. Marine Corps 238th birthday cake cutting ceremony in Southwest Asia, Nov. 10, 2013. It is customary for Marines to cut a birthday cake during the ceremony. The passing of cake from the oldest Marine to the youngest symbolizes the passing history and tradition from the outgoing generation of Marines to the incoming. (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt.
