More than 750 Marines will travel from Camp Pendleton, Calif. and across the nation for Marine Week Phoenix. This is an important campaign for the U.S. Marine Corps, because it allows them to directly connect with the American public and showcase who they are and what they do for the Nation. Additionally, Marines will be interacting with our community and giving back through service projects and leadership building events, as well as demonstrating their capabilities, technology, and equipment.

We are privileged to host them for a number of activities in Downtown Phoenix including Marine exhibits, robotics, working dog demonstrations, silent drill platoon performances, Marine Rock Concerts, and daily workouts at Civic Space Park. Additionally, there will be large equipment displays at 1st Street and Jefferson and a chance to meet Navajo Code Talkers throughout the week.

I invite you to attend any of the Marine Week events which are free and open to the public. As a hands-on, interactive experience, this will be a one-of-a-kind opportunity for Arizona. Help us show the Marines the gratitude we as a community and individuals feel for their service and sacrifice.
