Auxiliarist Tracey Alderson of Flotilla 091-30-05 Plays in Pipe Band

Picture of Pipe Band

The picture was taken in front of USCG HQ in Washington DC after a brief performance there for staff. The band went to DC the week of May 14th for National Police Memorial week. We have lost some of our own in the law enforcement line of duty over the years. We played in the pipe band march to the memorial site, then played intermittently during the ceremony with other police bands. Always an honor to be able to attend.

Band members, even if they are active duty CG, all pay their own way and expenses to go on these trips. You can imagine what our 7029's look like after!
