Date:4/6/2009

HEADQUARTERS MARINE CORPS, April 6 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States Marine Corps launches its inaugural Marine Week in Chicago, May 11-17, 2009 when the city opens its doors to the nearly 2,000 Marines who will participate in various community activities throughout the Chicagoland area.

"Established to recognize the contributions of local Marine heroes, their families, and the cities from which they came, Marine Week also showcases the rich history and traditions of our beloved Corps," said General James T. Conway, Commandant of the Marine Corps. "This is the first of many celebrations honoring country and Corps in cities across the nation."

Nearly 11,000 service members from Illinois are deployed in support of Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom, thousands of whom hail from Chicago. Marine Week Chicago will honor these brave men and women as well as the many citizens of Chicago who have provided their support from the home front.

Throughout the week, Marines will work alongside Chicago citizens volunteering at food kitchens and community parks; sharing stories of service to their nation with local students; conducting musical performances at area landmarks; encouraging children to become active through physical fitness challenges; and showcasing the Marine Corps' cutting-edge technology at venues such as Navy Pier and Arlington Park racetrack.

The schedule of events will include:

Monday - May 11

  • Marines volunteer to restore Levin Park (8:00 A.M.)
  • Marine Week Dedication Ceremony at Daley Plaza (10:00 A.M.)
    • Will feature the 29 Palms Marine Band and Color Guard, Brigadier General Melvin G. Spiese (Chicago native) and a pinning ceremony to honor Marine families and veterans

Tuesday - May 12
