Memorial Day 2017

As we come to the close of Military Appreciation Month, Ajax salutes our nation’s five branches of service, and honors the memory of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.

Wishing you a reflective Memorial Day from all of Team Ajax.

Ajax Meets the Marines

What an honor to have the 1st Marine Division Band perform “Hop To It!” as part of their annual concert series! SSgt. Alexander Panos, Marine Musician of the Year (2015), conducted his own arrangement of Sarah’s original composition.

Officers of the 1st Marine Division Band presented Sarah and Hannah with a commemorative framed score of “Hop To It!”.

Thanks to SSgt. Panos and CWO3 Stephanie Wire for two memorable evenings.


And thanks to our new patrons for their support!

For more coverage of the event, please check out our Twitter page and be sure to watch the video of these exceptional Marine musicians.
