U.S. Marines are coming together at the State Capitol to celebrate the Marine Corps' 237th birthday.
They paused to reflect in the legislative chamber during a traditional ceremony.
A birthday cake was carried out onto the floor.
The men recognized the youngest Arizona Marine, who's 24, and the oldest, who's 100. He's a Navajo code talker from World War II.
"It's a great honor to see all these past and present Marines that come back, and you know once you earn the title Marine you're always a Marine. So it's a brotherhood that's never broken and we love to celebrate it whenever we can," says Maj. Mike Ford, U.S. Marine Corps.
A man dressed as George Washington read a proclamation from Governor Jan Brewer, declaring November as "Marine Corps Month" in Arizona.
