What started as an event to go to with mom one year has since turned into a yearly tradition. Every year over memorial weekend I go to wolftrap to see the President's Own Marine Corp band perform fun medley's and pay tribute to men and women of the armed services. I love this yearly tradition because it keeps the spirit of the holiday in check while providing amazingly talented music. This year they did a wonderful job with the Music Man Medley. And of course the national hymn and the Overtureof 1812 is always so moving and inspiring. It makes you feel proud to be an American when you music like that.
A big thank you to all the men and women of the armed services who serve our country.
