The Sunset Parade is a military parade performed by the United States Marine Corps. Approximately 200 members of the Drum and Bugle Corps and the Silent Drill Platoon participate. This is performed at the United States Marine Corps War Memorial, a bronze monument that was unveiled at the Arlington National Cemetery in 1954 and is known as Iwo Jima. It commemorates the photo of the flag raising on Mount Suribachi, Iwo Jima. The figures in the Memorial are 32 feet high.
The parade consists of a performance of "The Commandant's Own" Drum and Bugle Corps, the U.S. Marine Corps Color Guard, a drill demonstrated by the U.S. Marine Silent Drill Platoon and concludes with Taps.
