Sunset Parade

Since September 1956, marching and musical units from Marine Barracks Washington, D.C., have been paying tribute to those whose “Uncommon valor was a common virtue” by presenting sunset parades in the shadow of the 32-foot high figures of the United States Marine Corps War Memorial.

Lt. Gen. Charles Chiarotti, deputy commandant for Installations and Logistics is tonight’s hosting official. World War II veteran and retired Col. Lou Schott is tonight’s guest of honor. The event’s date, Sept. 2, coincides with the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II in the Pacific.
