A soldier for music education

It's not everyday you see someone teaching band class from a Humvee. But that's what Sgt. Jacob Kohut did when called to protect the nation's Capitol ahead of the presidential inauguration. Beside being a member of the D.C. Army National Guard, he's also a teacher at Canterbury Woods Elementary School in Fairfax County, Virginia. 

 He made time to teach his students during shift breaks while on duty. He admits teaching music virtually is difficult, but he'd do anything to be there for his students. "I'm a soldier for the constitution, and a soldier for music education," he says.
