One of the most famous ceremonial units in the Marine Corps no longer will perform for the public at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island because of budget constraints, according to a news release.
The Marine Corps Battle Color Detachment was to appear at 4 p.m. Wednesday.
"Due to budget constraints and an Office of the Secretary of Defense directive limiting all musical and ceremonial units from traveling outside their local area, the appearance of the Battle Color Detachment here as well as other installations across Marine Corps Installations East have been canceled until further notice," the release stated.
The detachment is a ceremonial unit from Marine Barracks Washington. It includes the U.S. Marine Corps Drum & Bugle Corps, the Silent Drill Platoon and the official Color Guard.
