GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - In just a few weeks, KARE 11 will once again be hosting the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve annual Toys For Tots drive. It is an event we look forward to all year long.

And speaking of looking forward, on November 10, the United States Marine Corps will celebrate a big milestone. It was on that date in 1775, the Continental Marines were established.

Sergeant Andrew Noguez joined us on KARE11 to talk about the Marine Corps birthday celebration as well as to discuss the illustrious history of the United States Marine Corps. Noguez proudly shared his own personal experiences as a Marine and what it takes to become one of the few and the proud.

Here in the Twin Cities, the Marines are gearing up for the annual Toys For Tots drive which we are proud to sponsor at KARE11.
