As we started heading back to the Midwest – we look back on all the sights and sounds we’ve experienced so far. From the ten-gallon hats in Texas; to the Golden Gate Bridge; to the infamous Rose Bowl; to the lights on the Vegas strip; to the beautiful mountains in Utah. What an experience of a lifetime!

One of our goals is to provide a life changing experience to the members of the Phantom Regiment – and we believe showing them this great country of ours is a step in providing that experience. As you can see from some of the photos from the members, they’re getting to experience something they may not have been able to otherwise.         

But we’ve also encountered great crowds and new fans along the way. We hope all those that have experienced the Phantom Regiment live and in person have enjoyed that experience as well!

The organization not only has a commitment to all of the young people that pass through our programs, whether it’s the corps itself or one of the educational camps, but we also have a commitment to try to entertain and move our audiences. There’s nothing better than looking up into the stands to see the crowd on their feet! With our allotted 11:30 minutes – we look to move you and entertain you. We also need and look for your support whether it’s buying a t-shirt or joining our booster club. We can’t provide any of the above without you.

You can help us continue providing this experience by joining our booster club or easier yet – participate in our Text2Give* campaign.
