Provost Marshal General MG David Quantock was the host for the Military District of Washington's Twilight Tattoo military pageant May 15, 2013.

In honor of National Police Week and Peace Officers Memorial Day, MG Quantock, the Army's senior military police officer, hosted the event and received honors from the Commander of Troops and ceremonial salute battery. Accompanying MG Quantock were representatives from the FBI, U.S. Park Police, local law enforcement, Defense Forensics and Biometrics Agency, U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, Army Corrections Command, and the Office of the Provost Marshal General.

Twilight Tattoo blends military history with a musical revue, featuring performances by the 3rd Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) -- including the U.S. Army Drill Team and Fife and Drum Corps -- musicians from the U.S. Army Band "Pershing's Own," and the Army vocalists of "Downrange." The Presidential Salute Battery provides artillery support. Twilight Tattoo is held at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Arlington, Virginia.

With the exception of July 3, performances will be held Wednesdays at 7:00 PM through August 28, 2013. It is free to the public. For more information, visit twilight.mdw.army.mil.
