Announcing a new Meetup for The Fairlington Social Club!

What: US Army Band - Twilight Tattoo @ Ft. McNair

When: June 10,[masked]:00 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: Come see a classic (and free!) DC experience - watching the US Army band and drill team.

NOTE: The performance will be cancelled in case of inclement weather. If so, I'll post it here and you can also call them after 3:30pm on 6/10 for the weather decision.

Unless it's above 90 degrees, I'm going to arrive early, around 6pm, for a picnic on the grounds. If you want to join the picnic, state that in your RSVP. I'll be traveling from Fairlington and perhaps we can carpool.

"Twilight Tattoo is an hour-long military pageant featuring Soldiers from The 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) and The U.S. Army Band ?Pershing?s Own.? Experience a glimpse into American history through performances by The U.S. Army Blues, vocalists from The U.S. Army Band Downrange, The Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps, and The U.S. Army Drill Team.

Performances provide a fast-paced journey through Army history, from Revolutionary times to your Army?s involvement in current military operations. The Soldiers in Twilight Tattoo represent all those serving around the world in defense of freedom. "

For the 6/10 show, there will be a guest performance by The Ceremonial Guard of Canada.
