Community Invited to Attend Military Tattoo

Major General Peter J. Boylan, President, and the Board of Trustees of Georgia Military College will host the school’s eighth annual Military Tattoo on Friday, April 17, at 6:00 PM on the East Steps of the Old Capitol.

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 eighth annual Military Tattoo will feature the John Mohr Mackintosh Pipes and Drums Band, the GMC Color Guard and GMC Marching Band.

In addition, presentations will be made to the GMC Faculty Member of the Year, GMC Prep Teacher of the Year, and GMC Character Educators of the Year. The deeply moving ceremony will conclude with the formal retirement of the Nation’s Colors by a fourteen-member flag detail to mark the end of the day.

The community is cordially invited to observe this ceremony from the walkways left and right of the east steps of the Old Capitol. Suitable for all ages, the Military Tattoo will last about 40 minutes. Visitors and guests are asked to please arrive no later than 5:45 p.m.
