Marine Barracks, Washington, kicked off its first parade of the season on Friday, with beloved former Virginia Sen. John Warner (also a former Marine) in attendance as the guest of honor. Despite an unusually chilly evening, pairs of Marines warmed up spectators in bleachers with an entertaining and educational spiel ahead of the scheduled 8:45 p.m. start. Limited free tickets guarantee seating, but general admission starts Fridays at 8 p.m.
