Senator David Perdue Recognized By U.S. Marine Corps At Historic Sunset Parade

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, was honored by the United States Marine Corps at a special Sunset Parade. Since September of 1956, the Marine Corps marching and musical units have been paying tribute to those whose "uncommon valor was a common virtue" by holding Sunset Parades in the shadow of the 32-foot high figures of the United States Marine Corps War Memorial in Washington, D.C.

“It was an incredible honor to be recognized by our United States Marine Corps in this 51-year-old military tradition,” said Senator Perdue. “Having grown up in a military town in Georgia, I have a profound respect for the perseverance and sacrifice of our servicewomen and men. America’s best and brightest serve in uniform around the world, defending our freedoms and ensuring our safety every single day. Thank you again to Lieutenant General Michael Dana and Major General Craig Crenshaw for inviting me to be part of this incredible experience and for your unwavering dedication and leadership to not only the Marine Corps but also our country.”
