Marines and sailors of the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit attended a reception hosted by the Salmagundi Club, a private club for artists in talents such as painting, sculpting and photography, during Fleet Week. The event, located on 5th Avenue, served fresh hamburgers, hotdogs, chips, potato salad and various drinks to show their appreciation for the armed forces. During the reception, club members gave the Marines and sailors a tour of the facility, played billiards and exchanged their experiences of serving in the military.
