Visit by POTUS

As you probably heard, this was a busy weekend here in Yongsan, as President Obama stopped by the Korean peninsula for a visit. The 8th Army Band was able to play for the event on post and Rob held the baton for a few pre-speech tunes:

Whatever your personal feelings for the President, it's not every day that the band gets to play for him, so it was pretty cool. And he acknowledged the band right about here:

You can view the entire speech at this link, and can hear the band playing "Hail to the Chief" as he enters.


  1. That's awesome!! Great experience to see a president speak in person no matter what your political affiliation is.
