I was at the parade with a group of 40 middle school musicians, and we got there early to get decent bleacher seats. The marines in full dress uniform mingled with the kids, talking and answering questions before the show. They even let the kids sing the national anthem for the gathered crowd and all stood at attention while they sang. The show itself was excellent too!

My son and I were turned away at the barracks. We were told that it was an extraordinary evening, special guest speaker. The marine was kind and suggested to us that we stick around and enjoy an ice cream at the corner.

President Obama was the planned speaker that evening. All guests had to be cleared in advance by Secret Service. First Lady Michelle Obama waved to us through the car window. We enjoyed the fun of the Presidential Motorcade, etc.

More than we had planned.

Do not miss this if you are in town. Very enjoyable and memorable evening. The Silent Drill Platoon was icing on the cake.

This is a MUST see. It is great! My nephew is a Marine and I was very impressed with the band and drill performance! All in with the Marine Corps Memorial int he backdrop! A great experience that not a lot of people know about. Bring a blanket to sit and get there about 30 min early for a great seat!
