The Iowa Military Veterans Band is composed of over 100 military veterans from WWII up to the current War on Terror. These accomplished volunteer musicians represent all branches of the U.S. military. The band was created to perform one concert at the 1996 dedication of the Iowa World War II Memorial. The audience’s response encouraged the band to continue and grow.
The band’s mission is to support Iowa military veterans, their organizations, the state of Iowa and to honor national holidays.
The band promotes great American composers such as John Philip Sousa, Karl King, Meredith Willson, George M. Cohan and Irving Berlin.
The Iowa Military Veterans Band is a 501(c) 3 charitable organization and is dependent on the generosity of Iowa businesses and patriotic individuals to operate.
