Last night I was delighted to have the honor to attend the weekly Tuesday night concert series with Lt. Andrew Baldwin at the Naval Memorial on Pennsylvania Ave. I tagged along having no idea what a show I was going to have the privilege of observing- it was truly phenomenal!!
I cannot put a finger on what exactly was my favorite part, the Mo-town band who shook so much Shakira would be jealous; the drill team with their amazing discipline and coordination; or the rendition of Hair Spray that had me out of my seat, dancing (forgetting that I could be embarrassing the Doc.). I honestly opine I have never been so awestruck by such tremendous talent as that which I was privileged to witness last night.
The memorial itself is one of my favorites- the statue of the Lone Soldier watching over the world just resonates a sense of safety and peace of mind. Words don't do justice in describing how proud I was to be a citizen of the United States, as when the Old Glory song rang beyond the roof tops down Pennsylvania Ave.
I highly recommend checking out the memorial as well as the exhibits, which features, "Navy Medicine: Saving Lives on Land and Sea", the reason Lt. Baldwin was asked to give the opening remarks. There is also an incredible LED TV that is just gigantic- perfect to rent out for any upcoming event! I know I was half tempted to crawl into one of the comfy seats and watch Pearl Harbor! I'll be back... Hope you can join!
