Alessandra Souers of the Capital Regiment sent in this one.
"I'm the mellophone section leader at Capital Regiment this year. I met Shannon Franks (left), a guard member, last year and we became best friends immediately. We always slept next to each other at housing sites, and this was usually the only time we got to talk since she was in the guard and I was in the horn line. "We definitely helped each other get through the summer! This picture was taken after Finals in Orlando last year, right before Shannon was leaving for the airport. Thankfully, we've been able to see each other a few times since drum corps, since we both live near Indianapolis. I'm going to miss her this year!" Thanks Allesandra!
