Eighth Army Band

Eighth Army Band

Originally constituted in 1916 as the Band Section for the 35th Infantry Regiment, the Band was reorganized in November 1950 as the Eighth Army Band and assigned to the Republic of Korea. While serving during the Korean War, the Eighth Army Band distinguished itself, being awarded the Meritorious Unit Commendation and two Republic of Korea Presidential Citations for its actions. The present edition of the Eighth Army Band consists of 62 highly trained Soldiers, capable of performing everything from traditional military marches to the latest country, pop, rock, and jazz tunes.
