History

The U.S. Air Force Academy Cadet Drum and Bugle Corps was created in 1972 from the Academy NCO (enlisted) drum and bugle corps formed in 1948.

The corps performs mostly for military duties on the Academy grounds, but also competes once a year against the Naval Academy and Coast Guard Academy drum corps. Other duties include cadet formations, parades, football and basketball games, and many events outside of the Academy. The corps travels to such locations as Vail and Aspen, Colorado, San Antonio, Texas, Florida, and away football games all across the country.

The corps nickname is "The Flight of Sound." Its record against the Naval Academy drum corps, and more recently against the Coast Guard, is approximately 20-10-1.

The corps director is Mr. William D. Smith, a former member of the original Academy NCO corps.
