Donning their crisp ceremonial uniforms, the United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps prepares to play a patriotic tune, June 23, in front of their panoramic backdrop at the Iwo Jima Memorial. The unit, which celebrates its 75th anniversary this year, performs at the memorial every Tuesday throughout the summer.
