The Troopers are the only competitive World Class drum and bugle corps in the state of Wyoming. The corps, founded in 1957 by Casper contractor Jim Jones, represents Wyoming in numerous performance events during the year and participates in the Drum Corps International tour during the summer months.
The Troopers are proud to be a founding member of Drum Corps International. We have been serving the youth of America for nearly 60 years and during that time have held many championship titles, including the World Open, CYO, VFW National, American Legion, North American and DCI regional titles.
Aside from summer competition activities, the Troopers have been a popular attraction at professional and collegiate sporting events, including the Denver Broncos, Philadelphia Phillies and the United States Air Force Academy. The Troopers were the first competitive drum corps to participate in the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Parade; they represented the state of Wyoming at the 1993 and 2001 presidential inaugural parades, and have performed in concert before World's Fair attendees, NATO Defense College delegates and Presidents Johnson, Nixon, Reagan, Bush, Clinton and George W. Bush.
