The 2nd Marine Aircraft Wing Band played at Lawson Creek Park during a free Independence Day concert in New Bern, N.C., July 4, 2013. A drummer keeps up the beat as patriotism fills the air. Spectators cheered on patriotic songs and waved American flags. The marines felt it was a good way to interact with the public. "We've been told a number of times that the reason why we have a Marine Corps is because the American public wants one," said Master Sgt. Shawn D. Stewart. "We feel good about coming out and connecting with them. This stirs up patriotism for all of us, not just for the audience but for the Marines themselves."
