After the 98th Army Ceremonial Band provided pre-music which offered music as tribute, comfort and recognition, the formal portion of the ceremony began.

The 98th Army Ceremonial Band led by SFC Manford, stood up at the position of attention, as the national anthem was sung.

It was one of several Memorial Day services held in Dothan, AL on Monday May 26, 2008 to honor U.S. military men and women who died in battle in protection of this nation.

As we stood for the Pledge of Allegiance the reaction on many faces, was a thoughtful, respectful look, a look of sadness.

The 98th Army Ceremonial Band spoke to each service member past and present as they closed the ceremony with "Armed Forces on Parade."
