"Although I'm from a Navy family, I have 14 years in the Army and what you'll hear on this recording is as real as it gets because this is not "a band", this is the Commandant's Own - these are real marines and soldiers playing what they are charged with playing in their daily jobs for the Marines, for the Army, and their country." - A. Mitchell.
