A couple of high school students in Glendale have received a big honor from the US Army -- the chance to join the All-American Marching Band.
Tuesday, local soldiers presented Ellie Wiemeyer and Danny Carrera with jackets at Mountain Ridge High School.
The students will be among 125 others from across the country, performing during halftime at the All-American Bowl in San Antonio in January.
The teens auditioned over the summer.
"We all tried really hard to get into it and it was just something that came out right I guess," says Carrera.
Carrera is the leader of the saxophone section and a drum major with a perfect GPA. Wiemeyer plays the clarinet and has been in her marching band for three years.
