COLUMBUS—Ohio Senate President Larry Obhof (R-Medina) and House Speaker Cliff Rosenberger today welcomed the U.S. Marine Corps Battle Color Detachment for a performance on the Statehouse lawn to commemorate National Military Appreciation Month. They were joined by guest of honor Annie Glenn, wife of the late Senator and astronaut John Glenn.

"It was a privilege to be part of today's ceremony honoring the courageous men and women in our armed forces," said Obhof. "We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to the tens of thousands of soldiers who have given their lives defending the freedoms we enjoy today."

The battle color ceremony featured the U.S. Marine Drum & Bugle Corps, the Silent Drill Platoon and the Marine Corps Color Guard. The event was free and open to the public. This was the unit's first performance at the Ohio Statehouse and a rare large-scale drill by the group outside of Washington D.C.
