Soldiers with the 10th Mountain Division Band played for seniors at Ives Hill Retirement Community in Watertown.
It was a Dixieland style jazz performance, consisting many American classics.
Soldiers say they enjoy playing, especially for a crowd of this generation.
"In an extra way sort of an extra pleasure to play for retirees; there's a real high percentage of veterans and everything like that so it's always nice to be able to pay honor to people who served before us," said Sgt. Joshua Bennett, 10th Mountain Division Band, trombone player.
The 10th Mountain Division band tries to play in retirement communities a few times a year.
