For several years, I have been the Public Relations Director of the American Legion Auxiliary for District 5 in Missouri. Loving music and having a father who fought in World War II encouraged me to become interested in veterans and our history; therefore, I joined the American Legion Auxiliary. Before joining the Auxiliary, I attended many patriotic ceremonies at the National World War I Museum and the Harry S. Truman Library. I noticed that the American Legion Band of Greater Kansas City was always the band playing for the special event. I was fascinated and always tried to sit near the band so I would be sure and hear their music. It was the largest band I had ever seen. I observed the following: They looked sharp in their well-pressed uniforms; their instruments would glitter in the sun from being highly polished; they were always on time; they were organized and well rehearsed. I have admired the band for at least twelve years.
