Corps Day was a holiday celebrated by the soldiers and officers of the Republic Marines. The occasion marked the birth date of Republic Admiral Sakira Tobonne, the founder of the Marine Corps, and was celebrated annually whenever possible. Celebrations included performances by the Marine Corps Band, demonstrations of shooting skill by the Marine Corps Marksmanship Teams, or reenactments of famous engagements conducted by specially-selected line units.

In the wake of the disbandment of the Marine Corps as a result of the Ruusan Reformation in 1,000 BBY, Corps Day continued to be celebrated by those mercenary groups that had been founded by former Marines.
