The United States Army has served our country in peace and war for over 226 years. Today, as in years past, American soldiers stand guard "from sea to shining sea" in defense of freedom. To honor those soldiers and the liberties they seek to protect, The United States Army Band, The United States Army Field Band and the United States Military Academy Band recorded From Sea to Shining Sea. This album features several well-known, beloved American classics like "Battle Hymn of the Republic," "God Bless America," "The Stars and Stripes Forever" "God Bless the USA," "Simple Gifts," and "America the Beautiful." Other tracks include: "The Army Goes Rolling Along," "Summon the Heroes," "On Brave Old Army Team," "American Salute," "Hellcat Concert," "Ladies of the Big Bands," "Lincoln Portrait," "Saratoga Quickstep," "Theme from JFK," "Long Time Ago," "At the River," and "Over There." From Sea to Shining Sea features some of the best musical performers in the world, all of whom serve proudly as members of America's Army.
