43rd Army Band Concert 2016

Veterans Concert

Enjoy an evening of FREE, LIVE Music! The Nebraska National Guard’s 43rd Army Band will be performing at Urban Park, Springfield, Nebraska on Wednesday, July 6, 2016 @ 7:00 p.m.

            The 43rd Army Band is commanded by Chief Warrant Officer Brian Anderson and consists of citizen soldiers who bring a wide variety of skills, talents and longevity to the unit. These soldiers hold a variety of civilian jobs and skills that contribute a great deal to the Band’s success. This group meets one weekend a month and 15 days during the summer to rehearse and fulfill military training requirements.

            The 43rd Army Band is the Nebraska National Guard’s musical ambassadors performing at a variety of community and military events throughout the state. During annual training the 43rd Army Band either replaces a full-time Army band on an active Army installation or supports local communities and recruiters .  

            The Colonel George S. Howard “Citation of Musical Excellence” is awarded to active duty, reserve, or national guard bands by the John Philip Sousa Foundation. Even though this is an annual award, military bands are only considered for this award every three years. The 43rd Army Band leads all active and reserve component bands with eight consecutive citations spanning 24 years of musical excellence.

Bring your lawn chairs, bug spray and if you need assistance we are here to help!

RED CROSS URGES BLOOD AND PLATELET DONATIONS

DURING CHALLENGING SUMMER MONTHS

Donors can choose their day to help save lives during summer awareness

The American Red Cross urges blood and platelet donors to choose their day to give and help ensure blood is available for patients all summer long during its annual summer awareness campaign, sponsored by Suburban Propane.

 The Red Cross relies on volunteer donors for the 14,000 blood donations needed every day to support patients at about 2,600 hospitals and transfusion centers nationwide. However, during the summer months of June, July and August, about two fewer donors schedule an appointment to give blood at each Red Cross blood drive than what patients need.

How to donate blood

For more information and to make an appointment to donate, download the American Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). Donors of all blood types are needed. A blood donor card or driver’s license or two other forms of identification are required at check-in. Individuals who are 17 years of age (16 with parental consent in some states), weigh at least 110 pounds and are in generally good health may be eligible to donate blood. High school students and other donors 18 years of age and younger also have to meet certain height and weight requirements.

 Blood donors can now save time at their next donation by using RapidPass to complete their pre-donation reading and health history questionnaire online, on the day of their donation, prior to arriving at the blood drive. To get started and learn more, visit redcrossblood.org/RapidPass and follow the instructions on the site.
