Fort Detrick Community Gathers for Fall Fest 2013
by Nick Minecci, USAG PAO
Hundreds of members of the Fort Detrick community, Soldiers, families and friends, gathered under blue skies and warm autumn weather on the Blue and Gray Field Sep. 29 for Fort Detrick’s Fall Fest.

Attendees had a variety of activities to take in; two moon bounces, animals for feeding and petting, pony rides, face painting, games, food and music provided by The Jazz Ambassadors of the U.S. Army Field Band.

The Jazz Ambassadors played a variety of songs, including big band swing, Latin, contemporary jazz, standards, Dixieland and patriotic selections. At the end of the day they played Retreat as the flag was lowered.

“This is such a great day, I can’t believe they were able to put together something that has everything for people from grandparents to grandkids,” said Shawn Coulter, a senior program analyst with the U.S. Army Medical Materiel Development Activity. “It’s such a beautiful day, this is something really special. I’m glad I brought the family here today, and will be looking forward to it again next year.”
