Herndon, VA 20172-1293
The Herndon High School Band is proud to represent the United States at the 75th anniversary of D-Day in Normandy, France in June 2019. The Pride will be honoring the WWII servicemen and women, our veterans, active duty military and their families.
As they march, the Pride will also be paying a special tribute to the brave men of the USS Herndon, the destroyer that led the Allied naval armada in the assault on France. The men of the “Lucky Herndon” were given 10 to 1 odds that they wouldn't come out of D-Day alive. Not only did they beat the odds, their bravery and courage helped win the war. The marching banner will have a photograph of the ship and each student will carry a photograph of one of the veterans as they march in France.
Proceeds from the sales of the USS Herndon Baseball Cap will help offset the cost of the trip.
