We have been hearing a lot about #thedress  lately, so we thought we'd take the opportunity to explain where we get the colors of our Distinctive Uniforms.  When cavalry soldiers rode out west, they would remove their jackets to avoid heat exhaustion.  This resulted in lighter colored slacks and a darker jacket, which we still wear today!

On this date in 1945, an iconic photograph was taken by Joe Rosenthal as he sighted a group of Marines and a Navy corpsman raising the U.S. flag atop Mount Suribachi during the Battle of Iwo Jima. This image reminds us of the incredible valor of all our veterans. We salute you today and everyday.

Having trouble finding time to practice? Sometimes our musicians do too, so they have to get a little creative!
How do you practice when you are very busy?

With sadness, we say farewell to Leonard Nimoy, beloved actor, talented singer, and a former Soldier. He served from 1953 to 1955 in the U.S. Army Reserve. During his time in service, Nimoy put on shows for Army personnel and the general public as part of the Army Special Services. He was a true artist and cultural icon. RIP.

"A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP." ‪
