Chief Warrant Officer 5 Lawrence Barton, commander of the 100th Army Band from Fort Knox, Ky., greets Lt. Col. (Ret) Edgar Lewis on July 4 in Gatlinburg, Tenn. Lewis is one of the original Tuskegee Airmen and was present for the band's evening concert. The 100th marched in the 37th Annual Fourth of July Midnight Parade which kicked off at 12 a.m., marking it as the first, chronologically, of the nation's celebrations, a distinction the City of Gatlinburg maintains with pride. On July 3rd, some of the band's Music Performance Teams, such as the Jazz and Rock Bands and the Brass Quintet played in front of the City's Aquarium. The entire band also played their patriotic concert on the evening of the 4th leading into the traditional fireworks show.
