The U.S. Marine Corps Battle Color Detachment will perform at Cary High School on Monday as part of an effort to promote interest in the military.
The Battle Color Detachment – which includes the US Marine Drum and Bugle Corps “The Commandant’s Own”, the US Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon and the Marine Corps Official Color Guard – will perform its drill show at 11 a.m.
After their performance, band members and the drill crew will have a “meet and greet” and hold an informal clinic with local high school bands and junior ROTC units.
“Marine Corps Recruiting Station Raleigh is proud to have the Battle Color Detachment in the area so they can showcase their incredible talents and help recruit and prepare the next generation of Marines,” according to a Press release.
Based at Marine Barracks in DC, the detachment performs around the world to promote the Marine Corps.
