Military justice is to justice what military music is to music.Groucho Marx
As you can see, the value of military music divides some of the greatest thinkers of the modern age. Military musicians, on the other hand, are a wholly less controversial topic - especially when you can point to the example of Salah Ragab, who double-timed as a bandmaster in the army of Nasser, as well as founding the Cairo Jazz Band. You can hear a small sample of his work on the latest textureDJs podcast. Also, other ace music.
