Our Parade Boy!!

For those of you who couldn't make it to see the Old Man while he was in the Honor Guard, I found this great clip. This video shows part of the Evening Parades that the Parade Boy, as Grandpa Hancock used to call him, was a part of every Friday night. (Make sure to turn off the music on the side of the page before you hit play.)

To read a little more about the history of the Barracks and the Honor Guard visit: Marine Barracks 8th and I, Washington, DC.

This is some awesome footage. I only wished that I could have seen them do there drills in person. If anyone finds any more of this type footage, please post it or contact the Old Man's wife.

There are no words to express what this says to all of us.

Their dedication and courage cannot be overstated.

Gid Bless the Marines and our soldiers in arms everywhere.
