Thomas Smith (E&H '11) is a long way from home, but he is serving his country in a most unique manner. Thomas is a member of the U.S. Army, and he is also part of a brass band that is deployed overseas to support the troops. 

After finishing basic training in March of 2014, he then headed to the Army School of Music in Norfolk, Virginia, for 10 weeks of training. Shortly afterwards he received his assignment and found out he was going to Afghanistan. The picture here shows him in Kabul in December 2014.

He is maintaining a blog of his experiences while he's deployed, and you can read one of the entries here.
