A little rain didn’t deter the Marine Corps Battle Color Detachment from yet another spectacular performance at both Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort or Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island. The Drum and Bugle Corps, also know as “The Commandant’s Own, Marine Corps Color Guard and the Silent Drill Platoon, headquartered in Washington, DC, is the oldest post in Marine Corps.
The detachment, according to its website, travels more than 50,000 miles annually performing almost 500 events world wide. World class musical performances by the marching band are done for both military and civilian audiences. The Silent Drill Platoon wow’s the audience with its precision close order drill…all done without verbal commands.
