^Just to throw this out there, I am from the same band as Loud and Proud. (which I don't think she actually knows) HI! (know who I am??)
It may have more to do than guard than band.

This is just something I wrote and I wanted to share ;D :
A group of people who all play a sport together and work together on the field is a TEAM. A team becomes close, because if they aren’t they cannot succeed. They win together and lose together on the field…and sometimes they grow close enough to win together and lose together off the field too. But as years rush past a team may grow apart as each member moves on to bigger and better things.
A group of people who are in marching band together, a different kind of sport, are a FAMILY. They become close, not because they have to…but because they can’t help it. They win together and lose together on AND off the field…no matter what. And as years rush past a family stays close. The members move on to bigger and better things, but memories are never forgotten or taken for granted. See, a band is a family…not a team. They have all aspects of a team…but they also have more. They fight and have drama and problems…but they heal together. They fix the problems. They forget about the differences and about the bad times. They grow closer and closer every day…every moment spent with each other.
A band. We win together and lose together. We aren’t a group of individuals…we are one solid unit. When one member fails…we all fail. We have to be strong to prevail. By the end of the season, we are a family. We may even be tighter than a family. It’s the truth that we can’t change. But another truth is, we wouldn’t want it any other way.
So, yeah. That's just MY opinion, though. Feel free to voice your own!!
that is completely true. it almost made me cry. next marching season will be my last in high school. i don't want it to be but it is. i know i will still have college band but i will still miss it so much

My band is definately family. And as far as I can tell, we don't shun people who quit. It just seems like the poeple who leave our family move on from band and find a different family to belong to. Maybe chorus or a sports team or whatever else they do. They leave us before we could even think of abandoning them. At least, that's how it seems to me.
