‘The Division’s Own’ grooves into Christmas Spirit

Corporal David S. Corderman, a guitarist with the 2nd Marine Division Band, sings during the 2nd Marine Division Holiday Concert presented by the 2nd Marine Division Band at the base theatre aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune, Dec. 15, 2013. The concert also streamed live to Marines and sailors supporting Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan. “I hope it means a lot to the deployed Marines, just so they know that we are still thinking about them because I know they may feel as if sometimes the rest of the world forgets about them,” said Lance Cpl. Matthew Ramirez, a pianist from Burleson, Texas. “So I hope it brought them some holiday cheer and made them feel a little bit closer to home.”
