For three days, present and former MUs have had a lot of fun playing, jamming and telling stories at the NMA reunion.
Now things veer onto a different course. Soon begins our Friday night concert band performance. This tradition is a time to show off, to demonstrate what a few days of hard, enjoyable work can do.
It's also time for reflection. We'll honor our former shipmates with The Navy Hymn, our country with "America, the Beautiful" and our comrades-in-arms.with an Armed Forces Medley.
This is the real thing. Until later: Anchors Aweigh.
