Bill Messerschmidt sent this photo of the newspaper article showing him performing on his rope-tension snare drum with fifer, Don Francisco at the President Washington's tomb for a Veterans' Day commemoration. Of course, Bill is a U.S.A.R.D. member and has performed clinics at our annual convention. Bill's friend Mr. Francisco is a recently retired master sergeant from the U.S. Army, Old Guard Fife & Drum Corps.
