    Army Drumline vs Air Force Drumline at half-time during the Army/AF game. I play the first bass drum for Army.

    It's a tradition we have to play against each other at halftime.

    I'd say that this year it was a draw.

    Give AF some credit. It's the closest they'll ever come to actual D&C.

    The Air Force Academy Drum & Bugle Corps competes against their rivals from Navy each year in the Inter-Service Competition. This year's match was held in Denver Saturday night after Air Force beat Navy in football. Air Force beat Navy twice that day! Here's the video.

    My son plays sop trumpet. If Army had a drum & bugle corps they could compete against Air Force and Navy!

    I thought it was really cool.

    That woman scares me though...

    I didn't find the woman scary. When our band finishes the halftime show, the drumline plays before the senior section...there's a guy who always comes out and dances with them.
