On the thirty-fourth floor of Symphony Towers a birthday was celebrated. The 242nd birthday this week of the United States Marine Corps. But this USMC birthday bash is different. It's really the first time a centralized Marine Corps birthday celebration has been held. It's the brainchild of retired Marine major and helicopter pilot Kevin Cortes. The guest of honor is 87-year-old Irv Spector who talked openly about his PTSD that he says went untreated for decades.
