Each Marine gets a new pair of Rainbow® Sandals, $100.00 minimum worth of gifts, waist up massages most of the evening, 3 professional stand-up comedians, more food than they have ever been able to EAT, plus many more gifts (i.e. flat screen tv’s, surfboards, gym memberships) and for first-time professional lady acrobats. Wow, an amazing time for all !!!!
