JHS band students honored by Army

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Two Jonesboro High School band members were honored by members of the Army on Thursday.

Aaron Hong and Asa Puckett will perform with the US Army All-American Marching Band during halftime of the US Army All-American bowl.

They nailed the audition and will perform alongside 125 other students from across the country.

Asa Puckett says this experience will be a life changing one for him.

"It prepares me for what I want to do later on in life, which is go into the military for band and I feel like going here working with all the officials will and getting the chance to get involved in it will really be beneficial for me.

The US Army All-American bowl will air on NBC on January 3.
