The privileges of seniority

"Back in Unit Band 3, we lashed our upright piano to the
mizzenmast and hauled timpani on our shoulders."

We have no rank in the NMA. We welcome past and present enlisted folk and officers, career MUs and one-hitch wonders.

Still, age confers a certain status.

"Ha ha, it worked."

If you play your cards right and don't press your luck, you can get younger members to do the heavy lifting.
