From MD, AK, VA, many others — 01/21/2009

If you can play Guitar, bass, Piano, drums, or a brass or woodwind instrument well then you should join the Army Band. By far the best job in the Army. The best paying professional gig with a pension plan, the US Army funds the largest number of musicians of any employer. Yes, some bands get deployed and its tough, but most are not and the job satisfaction is top notch. More than 50% of band members have college degrees in something. The people I work with are smart, sensible and make good choices overall. it's a great way to pay for college or pay off your college loans. I finished my BS degree while on Active duty, the band commanders invariably support Soldier education.
I wake up every morning convinced I have the best job ever.
