The 28th Division Band on Market St in Philadelphia
America started in Pennsylvania. The “Keystone Spirit” continues with the PA Army National Guard and the 28th “Keystone” Division Band. The 28th Division Band led the Independence Day Parade through Old City, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Thousands of people, from all over the country, lined the parade route, which passed by historical sites such as Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell. The parade was also broadcasted by local news stations to thousands of spectators enjoying the parade from the comforts of their own homes.

The Army National Guard Band from Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania, under the command of CW2 Jeffrey Jaworowski, was led by drum major SFC Terry Alwine. The parade was one of many stops during the band’s 2012 Strategic Outreach, which included additional performances in Media, Allentown, Lewisburg, and Glenside, Pennsylvania. Located in Pennsylvania, where America started, the 28th Band “Rolls On” as one of the most active National Guard bands. Audiences numbering upwards of 350,000 people are reached each year. This allows the 28th Division Band to "let the keystone shine right down the line for all the world to see."

“Roll On 28th”!
