Our Mascots

Nimitz and Maggie are the band's mascots; they are both West highland Terriers.

Because of his intrepid spirit our mascot is named after Fleet Admiral Chester William Nimitz, the five-star admiral in the United States Navy.

He held the dual command of Commander in Chief, United States Pacific Fleet ("CinCPac" pronounced "sink-pack"), for U.S. naval forces and Commander in Chief, Pacific Ocean Areas (CinCPOA), for U.S. and Allied air, land, and sea forces during World War II.

Admiral Nimitz was the United States' last surviving Fleet Admiral.

Maggie is the shortened version of the Gaelic name Magaidh, which means "the pearl."
