Many don't realize that there are more jobs in the military than just direct support.  We know about infantrymen, tankers, aviators, engineers, etc; we often forget about the clerks, food service workers, nurses, and band members.  Yes, band members.

The military bands have come a long way since the early days, as they were more marching band and symphony orchestras than anything else.  This Air Force Band, Max Impact, is beginning to blow the lid off of the "norm".

The new lead singer is Nalani Quintello who, if you recall, quit American Idol to join the military.

If this doesn't get your national pride to stand at attention, I don't know what will!
