The year 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II. Although more than seven decades have passed since that turbulent time, we continue to celebrate the monumental accomplishments of the incredible men and women of our “Greatest Generation." In a special tribute to the veterans who served so valiantly in the Great War, “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band commemorate their service with a compilation of video, articles, and photos in their honor.
