About the 338th

Latest

The unit's Headquarters is the 88th Reserve Support Command at Ft. Snelling, Mn.

The 338th is stationed at the 83rd Infantry Division Memorial US Army Reserve Center, Whitehall, Ohio (a suburb of Columbus) and in Livonia, Michigan.

The 338th is currently made up of musicians from every corner of Ohio, Michigan and parts of Kentucky.

Members' ages range from 17 to 50+.

Space in the brass sections is minimal, however, they usually accept auditions on all band instruments, piano, guitar and electric bass.

They are always on the lookout for Active Duty musicians who are ending their enlistments and would like to finish their military careers in the Reserves.
