Now in its eighth year, the U.S. Army All-American Marching Band features 125 of the finest high school senior marching musicians and color guard members from across the country.
The U.S. Army All-American Marching Band recognizes the nation’s leading high school band members.
These young men and women demonstrate the U.S. Army core values of Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honesty, Integrity and Personal Courage in their everyday lives.
Like the U.S. Army All-American football players, the national selection of All-American band members is based on a broad range of attributes that go beyond performance and include qualities such as academic achievement, leadership abilities and community service.
