Earlier this summer, the Army announced it was deactivating the “Fort Sam’s Own,” the 323d Army Band, that has been stationed at Fort Sam Houston since 1995. The band’s purpose, historically, has been to tell the Army’s story by building bridges with the public through music. In 2019, that mission will come to an end—for now, says Chief Warrant Officer Jonathan Ward, leader of the 323d.

Catherine Cisneros expanded on the idea.   

"We have noticed there is an incredible amount of talent and training in our community that happens at an early age, and then life catches up with you," Catherine says.
