Did you know the United States Air Force had a rock band? Did you also know that they kick some serious butt? Their latest video titled American Airman just dropped and although it has a bit of a country twang to it, it’s good to see they’re getting better. The new video looks amazing and shows they’ve come a long way since the band started out a couple years ago. I’d be able to make something this amazing too if I had a couple billion dollars worth of equipment at my disposal for a video shoot.
The U.S. Air Force Band’s Max Impact has made unique contributions to our Airman culture, writing career field-specific songs for the Honor Guard (“Stand”) and Air Force Special Operations (“Send Me”). However, for their next project, the members of the band wanted to broaden the scope of their message. The result of this desire for force-wide inclusivity is the song “American Airman,” which was written by Technical Sgt. Nalani Quintello and Senior Master Sgt. Matt Ascione, both members of Max Impact.
