These guys are incredible. Nothing else to be said.
Welcome to the Marine Barracks, Washington, D.C., Sunset Parade, held under the backdrop of the Marine Corps War Memorial--the living symbol of those for whom "uncommon valor was a common virtue."
June 6 - August 1 7:00 pm EST
August 8 & August 15 6:30 pm EST
A one hour performance, the Sunset Parade features the music of "The Commandant's Own", The United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps and precision drill by the Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon.
The Sunset Parade is open to the public at no charge. Reservations are not necessary. Spacious lawns provide ample room for guests to bring lawn chairs and blankets for informal viewing. No other type of seating is available, except for invited guests of the Parade Reviewing Officials.

If a Marine loses his cover, the Plt Sgt picks the cover up, holding it in front of him with both hands. He spins the cover forward in a complete revolution and brings it perfectly down on the Marine's head. Looks pretty cool.
