    The Citadel Regimental Band and Pipes will make their third appearance at the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo in August, 2015 and will be the only unit from the United States to participate. They are the first and only military college band to have been invited to the annual event which is attended by a live audience of more than 60,000 and is broadcast on TV throughout Europe. The unit previously appeared in 1991 and 2010, they were also the only US band to perform at the 2013 Royal Nova Scotia Tattoo in Halifax, Canada.

    I usually don't make many comments .... but geeze...... give it a break! So sorry you picked the wrong school.....

    I am just a parent and a clueless parent at that. I have been coming to the site only a few months but long enough to see you spew plenty negativity. Have you ever thought that your attitude may actually hurt your end objective. I think I know your end objective but really not sure????

    What it leaves me wondering as a parent is actually, what did they teach you there? It definitely was not respect for others. Salute to your Alma Mater.... but of course you could be the exception to the rule. I imagine they hope so :)

    Every-time someone calls this poster to task they run and cry..... "C'mon see the humor"

    Must be a by product of that "Single Sanction Honor" I read about in another thread :)

    C"mon I am sure you see the Humor in that last statement :) With that ENUFFFF has been said.

    Thanks

    careful clueless, don't object too strenuously or your posts will be removed and you will be banned for "inappropriate" and "insulting" comments.

    Actually folks what will get you in trouble on the forum is intentionally insulting others, deliberately ignoring moderator instructions to cease and desist, to generally going out of your way to disrupt the forum, or to intentionally troll for posts made by certain and specific other forum members for the purposes of harassing them. If you avoid doing those things, post factually and knowledgeably and considerately, then you should be fine. If you feel the need to do any or all of the above- then you probably will eventually run into issues, as several posters have in the past.

    Now back to the original topic... Congratulations to The Citadel's band on getting selected for what should be a very exciting and memorable trip. I am sure that they will represent their school well.
