Normally you'll see the MCLB band doing what they do best... performing for large crowds.
Members of the MCLB band are training for their green belt in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program. For this exercise, men and women have put down their instruments and are picking up new fighting techniques. All marines train through MCMAP, and it's knowledge could mean the difference between life and death.
There are three parts to MCMAP... the physical, the mental and character building... which is where marines discuss a wide variety of topics following training.
