click on the "Video(Windows)" link and listen to Hail to the Chief.


The story I heard, from friends of friends, is that the Army Band Herald Trumpets were assigned to play along with the Marine Band. The Army guys wanted to rehearse, but the Marines declined... they didn't think it was necessary to rehearse Hail to the Chief!

OMG!! That was one of the funniest things I have heard all day!!! Though I love every branch of the military equally.....that goes to show you that Marines don't know everything...gotta love 'em though!

Yea really!!! I was in band in high school, and it did not take a rocket scientist to play as a group and all be on the same page...but I think after that mishap, it will never happen again.
