Military Bands play a unique role in the American Military.

They serve in a ceremonial capacity preserving the rich heritage and traditions associated with military service. Bands provide a protocol function playing for presidents, governors and heads of state around the world.

They perform a community relations mission, fostering patriotism and support for our troops. Bands are used to support local recruiting efforts.

Most importantly though, Military Bands perform a morale mission for the troops who are stepping up to answer the call of duty, at home and around the world.

The 234th Army Band regularly meets each of these missions as they perform at dozens of events each year. The citizen soldiers of the 234th are committed to serving the Armed Services and the citizen’s of Oregon.

The are truly “Oregon’s Own”!
