Everyone loves a marching band.

Especially when they perform heart-stirring songs.

That’s exactly what happened Saturday with the West Virginia University marching band’s “Armed Forces Salute.”

Also known as The Pride of West Virginia, band members played a medley of songs.

The songs and accompanying designs on the field were dedicated to United States military branches, including: Army, Coast Guard, Marines, Air Force and Navy.

A touching rendition of America the Beautiful capped off the performance.

Fans at the game were thrilled, and that excitement continued this week when the video was posted on social media.

“Our American service men and women have made us all swell with pride. Therefore, we pay honor to who helped to make, and continue to make, this country the greatest nation on Earth,” reads the YouTube post introducing the popular.

Enjoy this special performance, just in time for Veterans Day 2017.
