Bugles Across America is an organization of volunteers who perform "Taps" as part of Final Military Honors rendered for our nation's veterans. Given the number of veterans that we lose each year, it is impossible for our Armed Forces to meet the demand of having a live bugler at each of these services. As a result, they have had to resort to boom boxes, CD players and something called a digital "bugle". Bugles Across America was created to help assist in this mission. This truly, is sacred duty. I am very, very proud to be a member of this organization. If you are a brass player, I hope you will consider joining us.
