BACKGROUND INFO:
The Battle Color ceremony features the U.S. Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, the Silent Drill Platoon, and the Marine Corps Color Guard. All are attached to Marine Barracks, Washington, D.C., also known as the "Oldest Post of the Corps." These Marines appear in hundreds of ceremonies annually across the country and abroad.

The U.S. Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, known as "The Commandant's Own," combines contemporary songs and traditional marching music with uniquely choreographed drill movements in a program entitled "Music in Motion."

The Silent Drill Platoon performs a precision drill unlike any other. With fixed bayonets atop their highly polished M-1 rifles, these Marines entertain the audience with their intricate drill routine performed without verbal commands. The Silent Drill Platoon's rifle inspector highlights the performance with an unrivaled inspection of his Marines, performing difficult rifle spins and exchanges.

The Marine Corps Color guard carries the official Battle Colors of the Marine Corps. The 54 streamers and silver bands displayed on the Battle Colors commemorate the military campaigns in which Marines have participated. They span the entire history of the nation, from the American Revolution to the present.

The Color Sergeant is responsible for carrying the National Colors, and is considered the senior sergeant in the Marine Corps. He is selected for this important position from among many other outstanding sergeants throughout the Marine Corps.
