The National Memorial Day Parade is our nation’s largest Memorial Day event. Each year, more than 250,000 spectators and 3,000 participants convene in Washington, DC to honor our heroes who have worn the uniform. The Parade includes hundreds of active duty troops each year, featuring many of the military's most legendary units, among them the "Old Guard" and the Marine Band, dubbed "The President's Own." Ceremonial units representing each branch of the military lead off the parade, serving as an honor guard for the year's Grand Marshals, while the parade's "grand finale" consists of hundreds of active duty troops in battle dress, many of whom have just recently returned home from deployment on the front lines.
