100 Years with the Marine Corps Reserve

On June 16, the Marine Corps Band from New Orleans performed at Four Freedoms Park, concluding a year-long tour celebrating the Marine Reserve’s centennial. Eduardo Jany (top center), the organizer of the event, took to the microphone to thank RIOC President Susan Rosenthal, and RIOC Board member Margie Smith for helping him organize the concert.

Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (right) said she was happy to be on Roosevelt Island and not in D.C. and characterized the New Orleans Band as a “celebrated orchestra and one of the most celebrated units in the entire military.” They did live up to her description.
