The concerts showcase the band's full complement of brass, woodwinds, percussion, flags and feature twirlers. We will perform musical highlights from the 2011 football season, including favorite pregame and halftime music.No celebration of our freedom can be complete without a tribute to the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much to preserve and protect our country. The WVU Band presents our "Armed Forces Salute," which features a medley of the songs from all branches of our great military.This selection will close with a stirring rendition of "America, The Beautiful." The United States Army! The United States Coast Guard! The United States Marines! The United States Air Force! The United States Navy!No one can argue the great service that the men and women of the armed services have provided to our nation over the centuries. By serving in two World Wars, the Korean War, Vietnam, Desert Storm, Afghanistan, Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom, and in the war on Terror, as well as continually providing support and aid to those in need when all types of disasters strike, our American service men and women have made us all swell with pride.Therefore, we pay honor to all the brave men and women who helped to make, and continue to make this country, the greatest nation on earth!The WVU Band would like to thank the following individuals for helping to make our Patriotic Show possible: J.T.
