Twice each year, on Memorial and Veterans’ Days, and through the gracious hospitality of the Cracker Barrel Restaurant on Pine Forest Road and I-10, we have our annual Rock-a-thon. Members solicit donations from their friends and local businesses in the area for a pledge to rock a certain period of time for their donation. The venue is a perfect place for us to meet and greet the patrons as they arrive for their meals, while at the same time offering information about our detachment, our fund-raising activities, as well as the many local charities we support in the Pensacola area. In addition to the members who participate in the event, we are joined by the Young Marines of Pensacola who answer questions about their organization and their public service work in the area. We also provide a static display of military vehicles for the public to view and have their photograph taken if they desire. Please come visit us at the Cracker Barrel Restaurant next Memorial or Veterans’ Day. Sit a spell and visit.
