247th United States Marine Corp Birthday in Canberra

We were pleased to attend, along with some of our members and our federal colleagues, the 247th US Marine Corp Birthday Ball at the QT Hotel in Canberra this weekend with Guest of Honor, Ambassador Caroline Kennedy. This annual event honors those who have served and are currently serving with enduring traditions and commemorations. Among the many highlights of the night was hearing of the history of the Waltzing Matilda and how it came to be the official song of the 1st Marine Division.
