U.S. Army Presents Twilight Tattoo 2005


The remaining dates for Army’s most popular outdoor ceremonial program in the D.C. area will be held on the White House Ellipse at 7 p.m. on the following dates: Tuesday, June 14 and Wednesday, June 22, 29; and July 20 and 27.

Twilight Tattoo is an hour-long sunset military pageant that features Soldiers of the 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) troop units and ceremonial units – The Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps and The U.S. Army Drill Team; The U.S. Army Band Blues jazz ensemble, vocalists from The United States Army Chorus and The U.S. Army Chorale.

With more than 100 Old Guard Soldiers wearing Army uniforms of the past and present, a portion of our show is dedicated to providing a fast-paced travel through Army history, from Revolutionary times to your Army’s involvement in current military operations. As a part of the Army’s Operation Tribute to Freedom program, Twilight Tattoo represents more than 1.5 million soldiers and department of the army civilians serving around the world in support of the Global War on Terrorism and the cause of freedom throughout the world.

The U.S. Army Military District of Washington is proud to bring you this show. Bring your family, your friends, your group, and your enthusiasm for our country to one of our performances. This program salutes not only the Soldiers who defend our country; it salutes you, the citizens and patriots we defend.

Bleacher seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information on group reservations, contact the U.S. Army Military District of Washington at (202) 685-2888, or visit our web site at http://www.mdw.army.mil.
