On November 11th the Unit took part in the City of Murrieta’s Veterans Day parade. The Young Marines used their 20 foot trailer as a float for the Marine Corps League veterans of detachment 1057. As the float rolled down the parade route the young Marines marched behind it. And Young Marine Sgt. Major Guiles led a 7 Young marine Cadre that would re-enact the flag raising on Mt. Surabachi.
