Honoring our Military
Honoring our Military is something the Towpath Volunteers Fife and Drum Corps does every time
we perform. Yes, we represent the history of our nation by wearing colonial style military uniforms
and playing the music the soldiers heard everyday, being entertained while on marches or preparing
to go into battle.
Does this mean we are a bunch of war loving mongers? No, of course not! But I personally have a great
deal of respect for the men and woman who have joined the military and are willing to do whatever it takes
to defend our country or help people in time of trouble.
And now we are forming a group that is willing to play for special events that honor our military,
and, perform patriotic music at appropriate gatherings, be it performing the Star Spangled Banner before
a baseball or lacrosse game, a returning veteran from overseas duty or something as simple and meaningful
as a recruit returning from boot camp.
If this sounds like something you, or anybody you know, would like to do, even if it is only holding a flag or shaking the
hand of the honoree, let us know by contacting us at:
We would love to have you be part of any special event we play!
