Today is Marine Day at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, home to the Washington Redskins.

According to the Marine Corps website:

The 2d Marine Aircraft Wing Band will perform at the Washington Redskins football game on October 18th at 1pm. The band will perform patriotic selections for the pre-game ceremony as well as the halftime show.

While I do not fancy myself a Redskins fan, rather a Baltimore Ravens fan, I support the Redskins in their efforts to honor the Marine Corps (a branch I hold close to my heart.)

I won’t be able to see the halftime performance because Baltimore is playing today and the local networks don’t broadcast Redskins games. Did anyone see the Marine Corps band play during halftime? I want to hear your thoughts.
