CW2 Joseph W. Parenteau conducts the 25th Infantry Division band during a historic performance at the America Square Stage during the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, China. "Music is an international language that needs no translators," said Parenteau, commander and conductor of the 25th Infantry Division Band. "The band puts a human face on the U.S. military, which is often viewed as strictly combat arms," he added. The Division band is the first U.S. military band to perform in the World Expo and the first cultural exchange unit in China this year. The division band is in China on an international community relations mission representing the U.S. Army and Pacific Command.
