Marine week just ended today and it was a blast, We were blessed to host this event and welcome any future visits from the armed forces.
The Marines were here for 7 days doing community service and displaying equipment and giving demonstrations. They invaded the arch grounds on fri. and sat. with the precision and dicipline that they known for, and let me say..........they are amazing.
They all carried themselves with the up most dignity and pride and displayed unparelled manners and respect at all times. It was a great time to shake someones hand and thank them for their service........I think everyone went home with sore wrist.
We spent all day sat. downtown and returned this morning for taps, the silent drill corp and the closing ceremony. It was amazing and it brought tears to the eyes of all in attendance.
Here are some links to photos and vid's
If you ever get the chance to see a "marine week" I highly recommend it, it will be a highlight in your year.
THANK YOU MARINES.....AND ALL SERVICE MEMBERS PAST AND PRESENT
