Congratulations to Captain Commanding BG Robert E. Welch, Jr. for a terrific Independence Day in service to the City of Boston. The parade went well and CPT Frank Zarba’s military band did a fine job throughout with the traditional marching music including John Phillip Sousa’s Ancient and Honorable Artillery March. The Captain did a masterful job reading the Declaration of Independence from the balcony of the Old State House to literally thousands of natives and tourists assembled for the traditional reading.

From the Old State House The Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company paraded back to Faneuil Hall and into the Great Hall for the Independence Day Oration by Ambassador Raymond Flynn.
