National Anthem day occurs every year on March 3rd, commemorating the day “The Star-Spangled Banner” was officially adopted as our nation’s Anthem. In honor of this holiday Sergeant 1st Class David Wheeler, US Forces-Afghanistan Public Affairs NCOIC, approached the 3rd Infantry Division’s (3ID) currently deployed Woodwind Quintet for a special project of his own design. It was his vision to create a video montage of 3ID’s deployment with our nation’s Anthem playing in the background, featuring the ensemble. The resulting product truly inspires one’s love of home and country.

The video was debuted on the 3rd Infantry Division’s Facebook page on 3 March, 2015. Since the video’s release it has had over 1,600 shares and 64,000 views.
