CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Cadets from The Citadel's Color Guard, Summerall Guard and Regimental Band & Pipes set to participate in the 2017 Inaugural Parade boarded buses to Washington, D.C. Thursday morning.

The 150 cadets will be among thousands of parade participants following a newly-sworn-in president and vice president, Donald Trump and Mike Pence, from the Capitol to the White House Friday beginning at 3 p.m.

The Citadel names each participating Cadet on their Facebook page.

Among the cadets will be the public military college's first ever female drum major. Hunter Crawley leads the Regimental Band & Pipes.

"It's amazing, for lack of better words. It's a dream that I've actually had," Crawley said. "It's nice to be here and make history like that."
