Not quite as sublime as the location of the fine institution on banks of the Hudson Highlands, but almost...

If I had to work at any academy, I'd choose the AF Academy in Colorado Springs.

Amen to that LaTrompeta. I remember playing against the Air Fprce Academy in the 70's in Colorado Springs (I played baseball for the University of Denver). Our great hope was that they would invite us to their cafeteria after the game. I swear they had thick steaks in a buffet style line EVERY time we were there. Amazing !

Since I live in the region, I've worked with many Naval Academy band members over the years. All excellent musicians. If you've got the goods to complete in this audition, I think the career will be excellent. I highly recommend checking this out.

Is there any work that happens there?

I had heard that the academy bands were among the cuts forced into the budget by that military vet turned congresswoman who said we need soldiers not tuba players (or something similar - pretty sure "tuba" was in there somewhere)

You'll have to be a little bit more specific than that, Ron. That issue had raised it's ugly head for at least 20 years.

BTAIM, elimating bands is a little short sighted. Without going into detail, the Air Force, for example, needs mechanics to keep those planes in the air. And military music is a powerful tool for recruiters to get those mechanics.

Yeah, I wish I could remember more detail - it was a few years ago. I just remember being left speechless by her suggestion in a press conference to not just reallocate funds, but to reallocate the people themselves to jobs they had no training or experience for.

There is the article. How much can you save from the DOD budget getting rid of a band?

Service Academy bands still working.

Said politician is now out of a job.

Her proposal got filibustered shortly after she introduced it in 2016.

Sounds similar to a more recent statement by a politician that anyone who can mine coal can easily switch to computer programming. Uh huh, spoken by someone who is paid to talk.

Hey Capt.,

Who was the politician - I think he was from Alaska - who wrote “Is a 3rd Piccolo player really worth $35,000 a year?” or something like that.

I know you were in at that time, it might have been shortly before I enlisted.

The Congressan was Stevens from Alaska and he was a constant thorn in our sides.
