The band walked behind the soldiers and there would be people carrying flags that had there color (The American Flag). This is where the first color guard came from, a military color guard. The guard would hold
We’re true band geeks who love what we do We love our instruments, and band, too. For fall is marching band season, a time for woodwinds and brass to reign, For drummers to master the elusive beat, for the conductor to stand on the bandstand again The band and I — we live for our show, each other and for the show. We giggle and gripe and gossip together, we march in heat, rain, and snow. We pull all kinds of crazy stunts, try anything that sounds fun; But our spines are straight and heads erect when we march to the sound of the drum. Snapping reeds and clamming notes, Stealing all the trumpet quotes.

The film then cuts to troops marching to battle as music is played that details the impending doom of the Germans. Several shots of artillery firing are then played along with tanks and troops moving across fields. Along with these are scenes of

In his poem “Paul Revere’s Ride” he uses different elements to pull in the reader.

I climbed on the fence to get a better view. I shushed my friends as they tried to get me to go to the concession stand with them; I was too watching the band, I spent the rest of my middle school life waiting for my turn to be in that band, being an eighth-grade
Thousands of U.S. Citizens do crowd the streets, holding the American flag, singing songs, and giving out flowers. Mainly, on every year I call my grandfather, we talk about the war he endured and how is day is going. One thing my grandpa says every year is “Don't take anything for granted, everything can change in a blink of an eye” Though, he now has metal everywhere in his legs and gets very clumsy he is still extremely funny.

Starting in the 7th grade, we were required to wear a shirt and tie to school the day of a game. This was required for all the sports teams I played on, which included basketball and baseball. I was always curious as to why we had to dress up so nicely for games, and I always received the same response from my coach; when we play other schools, we are representing our school and what it means to be a student there. Thus, in order to be a strong representation, we must be well-dressed (among numerous things), to highlight our commitment to seriousness. Our sports teams were directly affiliated with our school, and we wanted to do our best to be valuable community members.
