Strike Up The Band

Walter Pincus of the Washington Post has been looking at military bands.  We have hundreds of them.  Easily more than 6000 members drawing salaries above $50,000/year plus health care, housing, dependents care, etc.  It is said we pay more band members than Foreign Service employees.  It may be time to pipe down.
