Battle Color Detachment Performing at Camp Pendleton March 11

Posted by on March 4, 2011 in Uncategorized

Camp Pendleton will host its annual Battle Color Ceremony featuring the United States Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon, Drum and Bugle Corps and the Battle Color Guard Friday, March 11.

The performance is scheduled to take place at two locations on base, the Mainside football field and the School of Infantry parade deck. The performance at Mainside will begin at 10:30 a.m., while the SOI performance will begin at 3 p.m.

The U.S. Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, known as “The Commandant’s Own,” combines contemporary songs and traditional marching music with distinctive choreographed drill movements in a program entitled “Music in Motion.”

The Silent Drill Platoon, which appears in hundreds of ceremonies annually across the country, will entertain the audience with intricate drill routines performed without verbal commands. The performance is highlighted by the platoon rifle inspector’s unrivaled inspection of his Marines while performing difficult rifle spins and exchanges.

Concluding this year’s ceremony will be a presentation of the national flag and the official colors of the Marine Corps, known as The Battle Colors.

Hello, I'm Mark Baird and I founded Hire Patriots. My wife and I are 'helpers.' We are concerned about meeting the practical needs of our US veterans and their families. We began a job board for local residents to post chores that they need help with. It has been very successful. Thousands of local US Military and veterans partially or entirely support themselves from our website. We are looking for others near US Military bases who would also like to have a HirePatriots.com website for their location. Find more information about our military programs at PatrioticHearts.org. And please make a contribution of any kind. Thank you.
