Happy 4th of July
The evening of July 3rd, 2014 was an exiting and entertaining part of the Mount Rushmore National Memorial Independence Celebration.
National Park Service Ranger Charles Desmond opened the evening and introduced Mount Rushmore National Memorial Superintendent Cheryl A. Schreier. Superintendent Schreier welcomed the crowd and presented the newest Junior and Rushmore Rangers after their official swearing in.
The Air Force Academy Band's Falconaires, professional Airmen-musicians, performed a variety of musical selections followed by a Military Swearing in Ceremony.
The United States Air Force Academy Concert Band was, to say the least, fantastic! The featured musicians and vocalists had the crowd on it's feet many times throughout the evening.
