One sound that always screams "military band" is bass drum and cymbals played on the same beat. Often with a fast "drag" on the snaredrum too. Also, bugles! Or trumpets/cornets imitating bugle calls. Those are military signals which are limited to the notes of a single major chord as the bugle has no valves.

Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.
