NAMM Celebrates The Armed Forces
January 24, 2013 - 9:00am - January 26, 2013 - 7:00pm
Anaheim Convention Center, Anaheim, Calif.
The National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) is celebrating the Armed Forces this year by having musical representation from many branches of the military. The opening parade, at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013, will feature the USMC First Marine Division Band as the executives of NAMM and dignitaries including Governor Mike Huckabee, walk through the halls of the Anaheim Convention Center where 90,000 manufacturers, retailers, musicians and music technicians will find the latest instruments and musical gear over the four day show.
At 1 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 25, 2013, the US Navy Band Southwest “Destroyers” will perform at the Venue Stage. At 5 p.m., Mobility, the US Air Force Band of the Golden West, performs at the Hilton East stage.
In addition, the Wounded Warriors will be represented 100-fold as guests of the show as well as performers. Michael Broderick will headline the CTS: Freedom Rocks Experience on the main stage on Saturday at 3 p.m.
“Throughout history, there is no better example of music’s power to inspire, encourage and in many cases to heal than in the military” said Joe Lamond, president and CEO of NAMM. “We’re honored to welcome members of our armed forces, especially those from the Wounded Warrior community, who come to the show to procure instruments, perform and to share in the musical camaraderie that is only found at the NAMM Show.”

Thank you for all your help over the phone today. Planning a Marine Corps Ball is a lot of time, energy and work.

Thanks for the email; I purchased the two Marine Corps. Cups for my brother who served with the First Marine Div. in Vietnam . He was very pleased with the cups and I was very impressed with the purchase. The online catalog did not do the product the justice it deserved. Thanks again and I am sure you will hear from me in the future.
Just a quick note of thanks to Patty Everett. I arrived home from a week vacation to find a package from the Marine Corps Association. I was expecting to find one of the magazines I requested, however, I was pleasantly surprised to discover both magazines were inside. In a time when it seems no one cares about customer satisfaction I am gratified to discover that customer service is not a lost art at the MCA. Once again I thank you for your efforts on my request. It may have been thing but the effort made a huge impression.

I received the shipment of plaques, books and certificates today for
mail call. It was more exciting to me than candy or magazines! Thank
you very much.

I want to relay my many thanks to everyone at Marine Corps Association and Military Historical Tours for providing me the opportunity to experience such a wonderful trip to Russia. Had I not won this trip through MCA I may have never taken advantage of such fantastic travels. The group, the Russian Tour guide (Oleg Alexandrov) and Charlie Dunn were wonderful companions during the trip. It will be a memory I will cherish all of my remaing days on this earth.
Again, Many thanks and Semper Fidelis!

Colonel Ford, I have to pass this on because I'm in shock that I was able to Connect (on the first Ring), Chat and concluded my business with "Sharon" in less than 30 seconds, at the MCA-Office. I was taken by surprise. Why, I'm Not used to anyone answering the phone especially on the first ring. AND...a human being...a lovely lady with a disarming voice, which at first I thought was a recording. WOW! I commend THE MCA for doing such an outstanding service for its members...make me proud. Just think...I was not asked "if I knew my parties Extension."?
Wish I had a Blog...I would spread around how delighted I am. What transpired to me today is Rare, just doesn't happen anymore. See, I'm so impressed I'm blitzing you here.
I wanted to take a moment and thank everyone at the association for sponsoring the Ground Awards Dinner on 3 June at the Crystal City Marriott. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and were tremendously pleased with the hospitality shown to us and the great accommodations. As well, I wanted to thank the association for the DVD of the event that was mailed to me. It is something that I will keep and treasure for the rest of my days. Again, thanks for everything.

Just wanted to let you know that I got the sword yesterday with time to spare. It showed up unscathed due to the excellent packing job despite the rough postal process. And most importantly it looks great and the Bahraini’s couldn’t be happier! Thanks again for all of your assistance.

You have been the easiest person I have ever dealt with since I have started MWR out here. You were very quick to respond to my every question and very knowledgeable about your work for an order over a phone that was my greatest experience. If you were in the Marine Corps Skylar I would write you up for a meritorious promotion. I will surely write it in my books to pass the word to the next MWR rep to continue the membership with you guys.

I just wanted to say thanks so much for making sure the uniform got back
to me in time for my commissioning class's photo. It fits me well and I am so excited for commissioning which takes
place in 17 hours! Thank you again!
