July 18, 2013
Arlington, Va. (July 17, 2013) - - Hundred's of visitors to the Nation's Capital, along with their host Lt. Gen. James O. Barclay, deputy chief of staff, G-8, for the Army, avoided the D.C. heat wave and watched the U.S. Army Military District of Washington's performance of Twilight Tattoo inside Conmy Hall at Joint Base Myer - Henderson Hall.
The Army G-8 is the Army's lead for matching available resources to the defense strategy and the Army plan. The G-8 team works to plan, develop, and resource programs supporting Soldiers by balancing Current Force needs with Future Force capabilities.
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."
Audiences experience a glimpse into American history through performances by the U.S. Army Blues, vocalists from the U.S. Army Band, the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps, and the U.S. Army Drill Team.
