U.S. Army Old Guard FD&B Corps at Norwegian Military Tattoo, May 2016



Unquestionably the highest point ever achieved by a FD&B corps anywhere anytime ever. What a treat! It's as if the New York Regimentals were resurrected, bugles added and then brought more than 50 years up to date. I thought the 60's were great for rudimental drumming. Someday we'll look back at this as the Golden Age. I can't imagine a higher level of achievement. Now we need to spread the knowledge, technique and style. I am overwhelmed.
