Each year, the band travels across the U.S., entertaining more than 6 million people in more than 280 concerts, parades and ceremonies. The members of the band are trained riflemen, fulfill all annual Marine Corps physical and combat fitness requirements, participate in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program and, when directed by the commanding general, serve as part of a security element in conflicts and exercises around the globe. There are several members of the current ensemble who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan and the principle conductor also served in Desert Shield/Desert Storm.
