Kudos to the Albany Marine Band for your magnificent performance. Your gift of music to the community was priceless.
The Marine Corps, like other Department of Defense organizations, must be mindful of budget cuts and community concerns. While this may be a sad occasion, if the deactivation process continues, it is part of the streamlining process to focus on the needs of the Corps.
It is unfortunate that the best band in the Marine Corps for the past two years and best live performer has to deactivate. Why not choose one of the less popular bands? Surely there is some way to reverse this poor decision. Have all means to stop this action been utilized? In a community which remains on Forbes top 10 poorest cities in America, this is a major blow to community relations. (PG)
