USIP Headquarters Groundbreaking, 6/5/08

These are old videos that I found  on one of my social media sites.   It is from June 5, 2008 and it is from the groundbreaking for the new USIP Headquarters in DC.

The first is the U.S. Navy Band playing Sousa’s Washington Post. Click on the photo.

And the second is the first stanza of “Let There By Peace on Earth.”  I don’t recall the group. Click on the photo.
