That Tuba Looks Familiar...

Fred Brown spotted his grandfather—a sergeant with the 332nd Infantry during World War I—at the county fair.

As the Mt. Sterling native began to leave the fair, he glanced down one last aisle and saw some old military footage being shown.

Interested, he stopped to watch and talk to John Doerres and discovered the archive footage being shown was of the 332nd in Italy. Soon, the two men saw a quick flash (the video had been speeded up) of a tuba as the band marched along in Venice.
"When I was a kid, my grandma would tell all of us that grandpa played this (tuba) in World War I in Italy ... (When I saw it) Oh man, it just sent chills up and down my spine because I've been wanting physical photographic evidence and there it was," Brown said. [Link]
