Lewis & Clark Young Marines were asked by the Optimist Club of NE Portland to assist with the annual Remembering America’s Heroes dinner. We are always happy to assist in any event that honors our Veterans and were quite eager to meet some of the evening’s honored guests. We had 8 Young Marines and 7 adults eager to do whatever was asked of us. We posted 2 Young Marines at each entrance with the Patriot Guard Riders to open doors and greet our guests as they arrived. Four more Young Marines were assigned to assist our guests to their tables and make sure they had every thing they needed. The adults just did whatever we were asked. Our Young Marines did an awesome job and received a lot of compliments and gratitude from our war heroes and their families.
