MSU Pride Band Salutes Veterans with Annual Concert


SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Missouri State Pride Band performed it’s yearly concert on campus tonight as a musical salute to our veterans.

The musicians played our nation’s anthem, God Bless the USA, plus the songs of each military branch.

A retired Air Force band-member also played musical selections with the Pride Band.

MSU head football coach, Dave Steckel, was this year’s featured speaker.

Steckel is also a veteran, and served in the Marine Corps from 1975 to 1978.

“This is probably one of the most humbling times for me to speak to you, because I have great honor and respect for the military and you veterans, obviously being one of them,” Steckel said.
