Program Notes

With echoes of "Taps" and other patriotic themes, this dignified composition pays homage to the men and women of the armed forces. On the easier side of this grade level, this piece will come together quite easily for developing bands. Beautifully crafted and dynamically scored, this is an absolutely stunning work that will fit a variety of programming needs!

- Program Note from publisher

Dedicated to my father, Bruce Swearingen, and to all the men and women who have distinguished themselves by serving to protect our country.
