Founded in 1997, the CorpsVets are one of only two drum and bugle corps in the entire state of Georgia.
"The CorpsVets are one of the strongest corps in the South, made up of some of the highest quality music educators in the area," said Troy Wollwage, Manager of Percussion, Yamaha. "We believe in their staff and their members and we look forward to seeing the corps grow. I know that they will continue to be a strong source of musical entertainment in the South."
Rehearsing and competing mostly on weekends, the CorpsVets members are given more time to spend with their families and work during the weekdays than other touring corps. In 2001, the CorpsVets won the Class A title at the DCA championship with a record score in that divisiona record that stands today. They moved to the Open Class competition in 2002 and have remained Open Class finalists every year since.
