“Many Journeys … One History”


2024 will mark the 90th Anniversary of “The Commandant’s Own”, United States Marine Drum and Bugle Corps.

As the only remaining active duty military drum and bugle corps in existence, prior service members have come together to form a non-profit organization , with the mission of preserving the history of military drum corps and field musics, provide ceremonial bugler support for deceased members, maintain an accurate roster of members, provide general educational assistance, in the form of scholarships, deserving individuals, and to promote camaraderie and esprit de corps within the membership and throughout the broader drum and bugle corps activity, in general.

– Semper Fidelis, and thank you for your support!

“We should cherish our belonging to something truly unique, special, and greater than ourselves.”

– Col. Truman W. Crawford, USMC
