More than one thousand audience members came out to enjoy the U.S. Army Military District of Washington Twilight Tattoo hosted by Sgt. Maj. of the Army Daniel A. Dailey, held on Summerall Field, Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall, Virginia, June 22, 2016.
Dailey became the 15th Sergeant Major of the Army on Jan. 30, 2015. As sergeant major of the Army, Dailey is the Army chief of staff's personal adviser on matters affecting the enlisted force. He devotes the majority of his time traveling throughout the Army to observe training and talk to Soldiers and their families.
He sits on a wide variety of councils and boards that make decisions affecting enlisted Soldiers and their Families and is routinely invited to testify before Congress. Dailey is the public face of the U.S. Army's noncommissioned officer corps, representing the corps to the American people via the media and through business and community engagements.
Twilight Tattoo is performed by Soldiers from the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) and the U.S. Army Band "Pershing's Own."
Twilight Tattoo is a show that provides a glimpse into American history through performances by the U.S. Army Blues, the Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps, the U.S. Army Drill Team, and vocalists from the U.S. Army Band Downrange and U.S. Army Band Voices.
The 2016 Twilight Tattoo season is scheduled to run every Wednesday through Aug. 3, with the exception of July 6 and July 13. There will be no Twilight Tattoo scheduled for those two dates.
