4.0 out of 5 stars Thanks Amazon November 11, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
As an Arrmy Veteran, I was glad to see this offer from Amazon, brought back some great memories, such as hearing taps at the end of the day and knowing that all was well. And it introduced me to some new military songs that I had not heard. Would have been great if the Army's Hymn had been included, but realizing that not every branch branch can have all things, it is a good selection. Again, thank you Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Tribute To Those Who Served November 8, 2009
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Veterens Day honors those who have served, and by extension, those currently serving. The holiday asks us to pause and consider the burden they bore or currently bear on behalf of all of us. This sampler gives us a taste of just a few of the music ensembles in the armed forces.

I don't think enough of us recognize the long history of music making in the armed forces. I know only that all the service branches have musical ensembles made up of talented musicians who can defend themselves, and have been around since the American Revolution.

The musicianship on this sampler is of the highest quality. All the service branches are represented here, but not all of the ensembles. Take a listen and try to keep a dry eye (especially on the Navy Hymn).

A wonderful tribute to those who served and continue to serve.

During the time period around Veteran' Day, the songs on this album are free. There's no scam involved. Yes, it's still listed as $7.99 next to the album cover picture, but that is its regular price. Scroll down the page, to where the songs are listed as mp3s. Look at the prices. In the price section, they're "FREE." Download the songs one-by-one, and you will not be charged for them, nor will they ask for any kind of credit card info. Just save them to your computer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Seriously??? November 6, 2011
By TAR
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Really... All the negative reviews are from over a year ago. For something that is not the fault of the creator of this album. All of the non-relevant reviews need to be wiped off this product.

As for the music, it is great.

Many thanks to Amazon for this offer. It may seem simple to some, but the martial music is stirring to this old vet's heart, and the kindness and generosity surrounding the free downloads are very touching.

Thanks Amazon. This is a wonderful way to celebrate our veterans and their sacrifices. This is also a great way to remember them throughout the entire year.
Being a older veteran, whenever I hear our country's patriotic songs it never fails to bring tears to my eyes. Despite some of our country problems from time to time, it is still the greatest country in the world thanks to those honored on this day for defending our freedoms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great way to Honor our Service Bands November 11, 2011
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
this CD is a great compilation of our service bands and ensembles playing patriotic music. The 2011 Veterans Day free download works. The Majority of 1Star reviews are from 2009/2010 stating that the download link for free does not work. The reviews should be reflective of the music not the technology that is not letting them download the mp3s. US ARMY 1998-Present
