Battle Color Detachment in Albany

The Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon

The United States Marine Corps Battle Color Detachment put on a very patriotic ceremony at the Albany Civic Center Thursday night.

Hundreds of Southwest Georgians filled the seats to see the Albany Marine Corps Band, U.S. Marine Corps Color Guard, and the Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon.

The Battle Color Detachment is a group of highly trained marines who perform precision movements with weapons and travel all over the country.
