The U.S. Army Military District of Washington will host their largest community outreach event, Spirit of America, at the Colonial Life Arena on Friday, September 21 at 10:30 am and 7:30 pm as well as Saturday, September 22 at 2 pm and 7:30 pm. This free event will tell the history of our nation through the eyes of the American Soldier by both traditional military review and large-scale theatrical production.
This show celebrates the spirit, strength and history of our nation and tells the true story of men and women who have left friends and families behind to protect and defend the United States of America. Soldiers in period uniforms will act out key moments in our military history, covering everything from the Revolutionary War to current operations. More than 300 active duty Soldiers will perform in this event.
The show features the U.S. Army Band “Pershing’s Own” and Soldiers from the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), the oldest active-duty infantry unit in the Army. Elements of The Old Guard include the U.S. Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps, the Caisson Platoon, the Commander-in-Chief’s Guard, the Continental Color Guard, and the U.S. Army Drill Team.
