A special military band will be playing at the Statehouse tomorrow. Ohio Public Radio’s Jo Ingles reports the U.S. Marine Corps Battle Color Detachment from Washington D.C. will perform around noon.

The Marine Barracks Washington, D.C. 8th and I is the oldest military post in the country. And House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger says it’s a big deal that the band members are playing at the Statehouse.

“This is the Marine Corp’s equivalent of the Air Force’s Thunderbirds and the Navy’s Blue Angels.”

The U.S. Marine Drum and Bugle Corps, the Silent Drill Platoon, the Marine Corps Color Band and the Color Sergeant of the Marine Corps will perform at noon on the west lawn. Admission is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
