More Marine Corps

This commercial was filmed last year featuring the United States Marine Corps Silent Drill Platoon. Notice the iconic landmarks--Times Square in New York City, Independence Hall in Philadelphia, the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, the Hoover Dam...but when you get to San Francisco, the Golden Gate Bridge is in the background. The San Francisco Film Commission denied the Marines the right to film on California Street, or on the Golden Gate Bridge (despite the fact that movies are granted such permissions all the time). The Marines ended up filming from Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

Check out the videos here for visits to other cities where people actually appreciated the Marines visits!
