ARLINGTON, Va. — Horses, cannons and soldiers marched to the patriotic tunes of the Army Tattoo Tuesday morning at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall.

The base held a media day in preparation for the start of the Twilight Tattoo summer series, open to the public, that starts next Wednesday, May 4.

Watching the show with media spectators were a large group of students from Georgia and a few servicemembers from around the base.

The Twilight Tattoo is open to the public every Wednesday, 7 p.m., for free.

The Marine Barracks in D.C. also have a Twilight Tattoo, every Friday through Aug. 28, from 8:45 to 10 p.m.
