COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) - The National Guard Bureau has chosen a song written by a Vermont solider to be its official march and organizational music.

The song was composed by David Myers of the Vermont National Guard’s 40th Army Band.

The song was the winning entry in a competition run by the National Guard Bureau.

Vermont Adjutant Gen. Steven Cray says the choice of the song is a testament to Myers’ musical talents.

“Always Ready, Always There” will be used during official and formal events.
