Announcing the second in a series of Armed Forces service songs for Young Band by Jerry Brubaker! The Army Goes Rolling Along is the official song of the United States Army and is typically called "The Army Song." The song is based on the "Caisson Song" written by field artillery First Lieutenant (later Brigadier General) Edmund L. Gruber, Lieutenant William Bryden and Lieutenant (later Major General) Robert Danford while stationed at Fort Stotsenburg in the Philippines in March 1908. The tune quickly became popular in field artillery units. ThisÊexciting march is further embellished by the call of the bugle.
