Remembering 9/11: Reflections from The U.S. Army Band

2 min read

Where were you on September 11, 2001? It’s a question that every American can answer. Some were too young to remember that day. Others can recall exactly where the were and what they were doing when the news of planes hitting the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and Shanksville, Pa., was reported.

Brucker Hall, the home of The United States Army Band on Joint Base Myer Henderson Hall, is less than three miles from the Pentagon. Many Soldiers of "Pershing’s Own" were honoring our Nation’s heroes at funerals in Arlington National Cemetery–adjacent to the Pentagon–on that day. Immediately following the events of September 11, The United States Army Band was quiet for the first time in a long time. The Band’s musical mission quickly shifted to assisting the rescue and recovery efforts at the Pentagon. Eventually, we returned to music; using it to honor, heal, and console. We performed at Ground Zero. We played "Taps" for those lost on that day.

We sat down with current Soldiers in "Pershing’s Own" who were serving on that day and heard their stories. We are highlighting some of their memories alongside the beauty of "Nimrod" from Edward Elgar’s "Enigma Variations," a piece The U.S. Army Orchestra performed at the National Day of Prayer Service on September 14, 2001.
