Right now they are doing the parade in front of the Lincoln Memorial because the normal location is getting updated. This is a "must see" and very patriotic and fine representation of the Marine Corps. We loved it; and the kids there did too. It's...More

I'm slightly bias as I was a member of the Marching 24, US Marine Silent Drill Platoon from 1985-1987 which is a standard 2 year stint. I never missed a parade. If you have any patriotic bones in your body you'll be in tears after...More

Best thing to do in D.C. It is precision. Such a wonderful experience. Have a picnic. Get there early. The Marines are friendly. They love answering questions. Some pose for photos. A must see!

We saw this twice while we were in DC and it was spectacular both times. A must see if you are in DC while they are performing!

The precision/synchronicity, professionalism, clear work ethic, pomp and circumstance of this unit will just make you burst with pride! Be sure to check the General's house's architecture if you can. Parking is a bit of a challenge but search the best locations online BEFORE you...More
