2009 Blue Stars trumpet player Alex Breitzke submitted this photo and caption.

Couldn't resist showing what my uncle Ed wears to every one of the Blue Stars competitions he can attend. He wears these braces everyday (as he has a neuromuscular disease) in order to walk. He's definitely not afraid to show he's a true BLUE STAR. This was taken before the Murfreesboro, Tenn. show on July 23, 2009. He and my mom traveled more than 400 miles just to see the show.
