My granddaughter is with the US Navy’s Fleet Bands and she just arrived in Norfolk from Great Lakes. I am so proud for her. The US Navy has just graduated a Clarinetist that will make them proud!!
I am so grateful for the USA navy training in VA. Beach for our military men and women to an ongoing broad spectrum, and the USA NAVY SEAL teams, that are unending for American citizens. Their devotion is immense.
