ROANOKE (WSLS 10) - One high school marching band is making final preparations before they head to hawaii for the "Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade" next month.

They were selected through an anonymous submission for the pearl harbor memorial parade.. and are the *only* band representing the state of Virginia.

I'm excited to meet the veterans that have survived pearl harbor that's special to me and I think the band is excited to experience that Pearl Harbor Memorial, Dylan Francis one drum major said.

The band will meet with some Pearl Harbor survivors. They leave Dec. 4.
