The Choctaw Detachment participates in three functions every year at the War Veterans Home in Jackson LA. Two of these functions are Luncheons which we host for the Marine residents and their familes. One in the Spring and one in the Fall. The other occasion is the celebration of Veterans Day where we present a cake cutting ceremony in honor of the Marine Corps Birthday. The upcoming event is shown below.
