US Marine Corps Silent Drill Team - October 9

Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9182 will recognize all veterans who served during Operation Enduring Freedom with an event titled "Katy Commemorates Operation Enduring Freedom." After two years of requesting, the VFW has confirmed that the traveling Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon stationed out of Washington, DC will perform. The guest of honor for the evening is a local resident and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) veteran Kendra Coleman, who was wounded while serving in Afghanistan. As well, the high school students of Katy will showcase their musical talents with a combined band representing all high schools within the Katy Independent School District.

The event will be held at Jack Rhodes Memorial Stadium in Katy, Texas beginning at 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 9, 2012. All are welcome to attend as the event is open to the public, and free of charge. This event will honor and commemorate all service members who deployed, participated and contributed in actions supporting Operation Enduring Freedom beginning in October 2001 and those who remain on active duty today.
The United States Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon is a 24-man rifle platoon that performs a unique precision drill exhibition. This world renowned, highly disciplined platoon exemplifies the pride and professionalism associated with the United States Marine Corps. The Marines execute a series of calculated drill movements and precise handling of their hand-polished M1 Garand rifles with fixed bayonets. The routine concludes with a unique rifle inspection involving elaborate rifle spins and tosses. All drill movements are done with superfluous spins of the rifle, making the Silent Drill Platoon's drill unique from other Marine units' drill movements.
Throughout the year, these Marines perform in front of hundreds of thousands of spectators at Marine Barracks Washington and at numerous events across the United States and abroad. Representing Marines around the world, the Silent Drill Platoon demonstrates the finest in Marine professionalism, Esprit De Corps, and marching precision.
Join us for the event Tuesday, October 9, 2012 at Rhodes Stadium, which is located at 1733 Katy Fort Bend Road, Katy, Texas. The event will kick off promptly at 7:00 p.m. and is expected to last one hour. VFW Post 9182 is honored to host the United States Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon. For more information about his event contact Frank Miner at [email protected] or Commander Dave Brasell at 281-391-8387.
VFW meetings are held at the VFW Hall on the first Monday of each month at 7:30 p.m. The post, and it's newly renovated museum, which is open to the public, is located at 6202 George Bush Drive in old Town Katy. Monthly meetings are preceded by a pot luck dinner.
