Drums of the U.S. Air Force Drum & Bugle Corps

One of my favorite drum corps, innovators and very lucky guys to have had the opportunity to play under the command of the late great Truman Crawford, this corps was years ahead of the rest of drum corps. The USAF D&B Corps that gave us many great performers, teachers and leaders. Here are some photos of its drums. See for the corps' history.

And, of course, the boys had fun, lots of it. How many Yankees in this photo can you name?

Reliable sources provided the following corroborated information: (left to right) Hank Bauer, Phil Rizzuto, Billy Martin. And the patch on the Yankees' shoulders is a 50th anniversary patch.
