Over the years Soldiers of The U.S. Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps have said above performing for huge audiences, dignitaries, or even the President of the United States, that performing for children is one of their most rewarding experiences.
The opportunity to share our love of music and the rich traditions of the Army is an extraordinary experience. What's more, is the joy and appreciation shown by an audience of young Americans that is unmatched in our performance and outreach mission.

A big thank you to the students of Centreville Elementary School for their exuberance, spirit, and bountiful appreciation. Your “thank you's” will forever be with us! You are what makes us "Army Strong!"
BTW... SSG Ruddle is my boy and I am so proud of him!
