Since 1946, The United States Army Field Band has traveled throughout the world, performing at public concerts, school assemblies, educational outreach programs, and other venues. Above you can watch one of the band’s performing units–the Six-String Soldiers–play an acoustic version of Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here.” Because we all know someone we surely miss. To explore more of their work, see their cover versions of The Allman Brothers’ “Ramblin’ Man” and The Beatles’ “Strawberry Fields Forever.”
