Oregon's Soldiers put the 'boom' in 1812 Overture

Citizen-Soldiers with the 2-218 Field Artillery, Oregon Army National Guard, demonstrate the abilities and features of their howitzers at the Oregon Symphony Waterfront Park Concert, Aug. 30, in Portland, Ore.
 
The howitzers have become a tradition at the concert, firing during the playing of Tchaikovsky's 1812 overture.
