And that’s how father and son enlisted last year — the father in July after the duo auditioned May 25, and the son in late September through delayed entry because he hadn’t yet completed high school.
Andrew, who is home-schooled, had to finish up his senior year to meet an enlistment deadline.
"He had to finish his senior year in three months," recalled his mom Colleen.
Now father and son are both members of the same elite unit. While they’ve practiced together, they haven’t yet played together professionally as Soldiers of the Fife and Drum Corps.
