Groups from across the country selected to participate in Obama's inaugural parade

Spouses of those serving in the armed forces, military and civilian colleges, gay musicians and President Barack Obama's hometown will all be represented in next month's inaugural parade.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee began sending out invitations Tuesday to participants chosen to march behind Obama from his swearing in at the Capitol to the White House on Jan. 21.

The first selectees include the Virginia Military Institute, which is a traditional performer in inaugural parades, and the marching band from Miami University of Ohio, where first lady Michelle Obama spoke near the end of the campaign.

Others include Military Spouses of Michigan, the Lesbian and Gay Band Association of St. Louis, Chicago's South Shore Drill Team and marching bands from Little Rock Central High School and Washington's Ballou Senior High School.
