CORPS Photos

The Chordaliers, formed in 1960 or 1962, was a junior marching and maneuvering corps based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They were sponsored by American Legion Post 400, Theodore Wagner CWV Post 572, and the Gross Yaksh VFW Post.

The corps’ colors were black, white, and gold.

Awards included the Wisconsin Catholic War Veterans Championships.

One correspondent remembers seeing the Chordaliers on roller skates in a roller rink for one performance.

The corps was active through at least 1973.
