The military is getting into the music video business more and more lately. The Air Force caught a little flak for the video they put together, "American Airman," featuring one of its bands, Max Impact — mostly because it looks like it cost more than the entire Marine Corps. They even went on to make more music videos.
Meanwhile, the U.S. Army has been in the game all along with its band, called "Pershing's Own," and its many iterations — the most notable of which is a bluegrass cover band, dubbed " "Six-String Soldiers."
The Navy hasn't really been in the music video business all that much since Cher decided to show the crew of the USS Missouri what freedom really looked like back in 1989 (hint: it looks like a one-piece swimsuit and sheer catsuit).
The Coast Guard also took a foray into music videos, with this kid's cover of the 1959 Frankie Ford classic song, "Sea Cruise." Say what you will, at least the song choice was appropriate.
The Coast Guard made this video in conjunction with Kidsongs, who do video and audio tracks of cover songs using kids' voices. This was part of a DVD series about what kids might want to be when they grow up.
The "Sea Cruise" video showed them exactly what Coast Guard life is like... Probably.
