Friday Fun: A Musical Prelude for AALL Boston 2012 Attendees
Provided by The Old Guard Fife & Drum Corps.
From the YouTube description:
The 3rd U.S. Infantry, traditionally known as "The Old Guard," is the oldest active-duty infantry unit in the Army, serving our nation since 1784. The Old Guard is the Army's official ceremonial unit and escort to the president, and it also provides security for Washington, D.C., in time of national emergency or civil disturbance.
Occupy AALL? Well, AALL is meeting in Boston, not D.C., and I seriously doubt there will be too great a civil disturbance to call in AALL's security force but that doesn't mean we won't see plenty of performances from our association's official ceremonial unit. [JH]
