During the event, soldiers brought history to life with the Spirit of America performance. The performance captured the true stories of those who have answered the call to duty for our nation. The soldiers, dressed in historical uniforms, re-enacted key moments in the U.S. Army and American history. The re-enactments included battle scenes, short periods of simulated gunfire, and performances by the Army’s elite ceremonial units.
The show featured the U.S. Army Band, “Pershing’s Own,” and soldiers of the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) — the Army’s oldest active-duty infantry unit, which includes the Fife and Drum Corps, the Caisson Platoon, the Commander-in-Chief’s Guard, the Continental Color Guard and the U.S. Army Drill Team.
