There are currently 589 Signatures to support the Signal Corps Band at Fort Gordon, help us get to 1,000!

“The Signal Corps Band serves not only for the morale of the military community, but also as a reminder to the civilian community of the sacrifices being made around the world for our freedom. The presence of the band links both military and civilian communities as they come together to enjoy the timeless traditions of a military band. With so much divisiveness in our country today, this serves a peaceful, nostalgic reminder of patriotism in our land that can bring us all together as Americans.” – Cyndy Epps, Local Artist
