The U.S. Marine Guards marched their colors, and the U.S. Air Forces in Europe (USAFE) Band’s “Touch N Go” Rock Ensemble provided non-stop entertainment. Among the distinguished guests were Portuguese politicians, academics and foreign diplomats. Everyone enjoyed the authentic American July 4th celebrations.
