Palau President Attends US Marine Corps Parade In D.C.

Since September 1956, the Marine Corps Sunset Parade has been held every Tuesday during the summer at the world’s largest bronze statue, the Iwo Jima Memorial next to Arlington National Cemetery. In bright red dress uniforms, the Marine Corps Drum and Bugle Corps leads off with a medley of various military standards and popular songs. The musical portion is followed by the Silent Drill Platoon, a 24-man precision exhibition drill team working with 10-pound M1 rifles tipped with fixed bayonets.
MARINE WEEK HEADED TO SEATTLE IN AUGUST Michael McGinn, mayor of Seattle, Wash., and Lt. Gen. Steven A. Hummer, commander of U.S. Marine Forces Reserve and Marine Forces North, announced Feb. 25 Marine Week is coming to Seattle Aug. 5-11. Marine Week is a celebration of community, country and Corps, and provides the unique experience to directly connect the American public and their Marines. "We are honored to host Marine Week 2013," said McGinn. "It is going to be a good opportunity for the people of Seattle to interact with our Marines and show our appreciation for those who serve and protect our country." Throughout the week, Marines will be lending a hand to local residents through community service projects, and Seattleites will have the opportunity to climb aboard a variety of the Corps' aircraft and ground equipment; witness Marine Corps aircraft, martial arts, and working dog demonstrations; and take in the sights and sounds of the Silent Drill Platoon and Marine Corps Band.
