Grand Tattoo and Command Retreat

GMC Holds Seventh Annual Grand Tattoo and Command Retreat Major General Peter J. Boylan, President, and the Board of Trustees of Georgia Military College hosted the school’s seventh annual Grand Tattoo and Command Retreat on Friday, April 18, at 6:00 PM on Grant Parade. A military tattoo is an outdoor military exercise given by troops as evening entertainment, and is a program steeped with history and tradition. Georgia Military College’s seventh annual military tattoo featured the John Mohr Mackintosh Pipes and Drums Band and the GMC Color Guard, as well as presentations to the GMC Preparatory School Teacher of the Year, GMC-Major Charlie Harbor, GMC Faculty Member of the Year, Professor Heyward Washington, GMC Junior College Character Educator of the Year, Professor Jeffery Wells, and GMC Preparatory School Character Educator of the Year, GMC-Major Emily Fairbrass. The deeply moving ceremony concluded with the formal retirement of the Nation’s Colors by a fourteen-member flag detail to mark the end of the day. ###
