Proud Crossmen parents, Kathy and David Thompson, sent this photo.

Attached is a picture of our son, Alan who is marching in his first year playing snare drum with the Crossmen. He is a senior at Colleyville Heritage High School in Colleyville, Texas. You can see by this photo taken after the corps' performance in Allentown, Pa. how very happy he is to be part of drum corps.

This kid is driven! He worked and made sacrifices to pay for this experience during the school year while carrying a full school class load in addition to being drum captain of his high school drum line.
