Walk through the history of the Army with music and words of soldiers past, soldiers dressed in uniform from our country's early days to now, and precision bayonet exhibition. Musicians from the Army Band and other ensembles and Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps are fabulous. Drummers from the Corps are particularly spectacular as are the bayonet-wielding/twirling members of the U.S. Army Drill Team. Held at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall - usually outside at Summerall Field but ended up inside due to weather. Helpful soldiers/guards on hand to direct visitors. I got there at 7 pm (start time) and there were no seats. Advise going earlier! FYI that there are quite a few speaking/historical bits throughout the program; noted some smaller kids getting antsy, esp. because we were corralled inside. Internet search "twilight tattoo dc" and you can find Army link with further details/directions. Folks with DOD or fed-IDs can enter via different gates. By the way, there is a fun bowling alley on base, if you fancy a game, beer and some grub too.

As a licensed Washington DC Guide, with over 90 trips to DC, the Twilight Tattoo is comparable on,y to The Changing of The Guard at The Tomb of The Unknown Soldier. What makes it so special is that the sentinels(tomb guards) are trained at Ft. meet and participate in the pageantry. Not only a tribute to our Army, but a history lesson with our soldiers and the opportunity to meet them afterwards! Only from mid May to mid August....do not miss this one!!

I left feeling even more proud to be an American. Our talented military men and women honor those in the wars before them by doing performances along with a march by the Fort Myers drill team. I would definitely recommend this. You get a chance to talk to the soldiers after which was awesome! They were so sweet to the kids especially. This event really touched my heart!
