Soldier Readiness

Our Soldiers are tactical and technical experts. An example of this is SPC Taylor Webb, SPC Webb recently attended Advanced Individual Training (AIT) in Virginia Beach, VA. While at AIT, SPC Webb graduated as a member of the Commandants List with the highest Physical Training Score of 580 out of 600, and a Charlie One (C1) identifier with an Army Musical Proficiency Assessment (AMPA) with an overall score above 30.  SPC  Webb is an example of true expertise, dedication, and determination.

Breaking Records

Our most recent Basic Leadership Course (BLC) Graduate is SGT Eliot Lawrence. While at BLC, SGT Lawrence set a Night Land Navigation Course record by completing the entire course in 16 minutes. This success led him to place top 10 in his graduating class as a member of the Commandants List. Soldiers like SGT Lawrence continue to break stereotypes and norms, representing all bandsmen alike and our ability to perform above the standard. 

Bridging Cultures & Values

"The 39th Army Band poses with a crowd of more than 25,000 during their second concert on Feb. 5 at the Ilopango Airshow Oficial

The 39th Army Band returned to the land of volcanoes this past Feb, 2023 to perform at the Ilopango Airshow Oficial for the third time in five years under the New Hampshire National Guard-El Salvador State Partnership Program.

With a playlist of traditional and Top 40, the platoon of citizen-soldier musicians drew a fiery crowd of thousands during the two-day extravaganza Feb. 4 and 5. Hosted annually on the grounds of a Salvadoran air force base, Central America's largest airshow featured stunt pilots, pyrotechnics, and military flyovers including two from a 157th Air Refueling Wing KC-46A Pegasus.

The band's stage faced a stunning view of Ilopango's volcanic ridgeline made all the more dramatic by early sunsets."
