How do you see this difference in the context mentioned below. Is there any significant change of meaning?

Context [descriptive historical text with a link to the today's situation]:

All the German soldiers in this district are proud to/proudly continue the noble tradition of wearing blue uniforms.

Thanks

    Like Rover KE says, they both mean the same thing.

    Personally, I think 'proudly' sounds better in this context.
