    there is no such thing as a former Marine. Once a Marine always a Marine.

    I lived in the DC area for years. My dad was an Admiral, and I saw the drill team many times. It gave me chills to watch it each and every time. Sadly, Dad is now gone, and I moved away from DC. I would love to come back and watch this again and show my son, but the tickets are gone. Any idea when they will go on sale for 2014? Much thanks if you post a response.
