Im going to take up for those military musicians. They provide a service to their country. Not everyone can do what they do and they have a history going back into the American Revolution. Musicians were no sissies but played a vital role in military battlefields.<quoted text> I was gong to join the band, but considered that a wimp thing to do. Yes, I saw some Bush time. Joined the band after my tour. Spent the remainder of my service time between teaching and playing at the Navy School of Music in Norfork VA. and Fort Dix New Jersey, the last 4 months of my service.
Today their role is no less than it ever has. Thank you Doctor for your service you provided to your country.[Salute]
