77th Army Band celebrates Veterans Day with music

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - The halls of the McMahon Memorial Auditorium were full of classical music for Veterans Day on Sunday. The 77th Army Band and the McMahon Auditorium Authority teamed up this year for a free concert. The concert is titled "A Salute to Veterans." They played songs we all know like Amazing Grace, America the Beautiful, and Stars and Stripes Forever.

This is all to honor the veterans with music.

"My unit thinks it's important to volunteer, and to pretty much keep the tradition going.," Justin Rocker, Drill Sergeant said. "Being stewards of the profession for those who have served before us and paved the way. "

The event was free and open to the public. The 77th Army Band does many performances in Southwest Oklahoma. You can find more events they will perform on their website.
