U.S. Marine Band Performance
It was a clear evening on Friday, May 30 as FBWE Villagers ventured to Capitol Hill to hear the “President’s Own” Marine Band perform rousing music and to view Marines doing a silent drill, tossing and twirling 10 lb. rifles while marching in configurations that would have made the Radio City Rockettes take notice. It was a meaningful evening in many ways — a new 800 ft. ship (longer than the Kennedy Center!) is to be launched and tributes were paid to those who serve, closing with the playing of taps from the ramparts. In all, an inspiring evening.
