Silent Drill Platoon's first performance of the year
Today, the United States Marine Silent Drill Platoon performed for the first time this year at Marine Barracks Washington. We hosted approximately 150 World War II veterans with a group called the Flight of Honor. It's amazing the sacrifice these men and women made and the impact they had not only on their generation, but mine as well. We were privileged enough to get to meet them and learn some of their heroic stories. I thank God for their service and I am proud to carry on their legacy.
