College Station, Texas November 15th, 2012 – Jae-Hyun Ryoo of A&M Consolidated High School, College Station, Texas, has been selected to be a member of the 2013 U.S. Army All-American Marching Band.  Ryoo will join an elite group of musicians who will perform during halftime of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas.
 
“The U.S. Army has a distinguished musical history,” said John Myers, Director of Marketing, Army Marketing and Research Group. “The skills and strengths necessary to be a successful band member are mirrored in Army Strong Soldiers. Only the strongest wear the Army colors, which is why we are proud to honor all of our 2013 U.S. Army All-American Band members and congratulate each of them on their selection.”

The U.S. Army All-American Marching Band recognizes the top 125 high school senior marching musicians and color guard members from across the country, showcasing their talents during the largest celebration of high school football in America, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, televised live on NBC at 1:00 p.m. EST on Saturday, January 5, 2013.
