The Boys in Blue White Dress

Very few Americans walk away unmoved from a Friday Evening Parade at the Marine Barracks, 8th and "I" Sts, SE, Washington, DC. It's the oldest Post of the Corps. By visiting The Barracks, President Kennedy became the first President to do so since Thomas Jefferson in 1801. This brought about a special relationship with The Barracks' Marines. A bond that was brought to a tragic end by a sniper's bullet in November 1963. Lieutenant Barney Quinn tells little known details of the Death Watch at the casket and his inner most private thoughts. While on this watch, he also reflects on other ceremonies, memories and moments, and of the rowdy behavior of these rakish "Boys in Blue White Dress." These stand tall, look sharp Marines at their roguish best created a work hard, play hard life style similar to the yesteryear Corps' Leathernecks. Join Barney and the Boys in Blue White Dress. Walk in their ceremonial shoes.
