    I was honored to be requested to play TAPS at The Vietnam Veterans Memorial ceremony on March 30th 2018 at The Wall in Washington D.C. I also played for the dedication of The World War II Memorial in 2004. I still do play Taps every Wednesday at The Washington Crossing National Cemetery in Newtown, PA having over 1750 missions in the last 5 years. I will continue this until I am no longer able.

    As a bugler since 1962 who has had many interesting experiences playing Taps as well as the other garrison bugle calls it is a passion I hope I never outgrow. God gifted me with a talent I am thankful I can share with others. While I can no longer see to read music and rarely play my trumpet it is my bugles that I enjoy sharing with others, and that usually brings the common question as to how do I play all those different notes if the horn does not have valves! Last Nov I played Last Post and Rouse (a short reveille) at a United Kingdom Remembrance Day ceremony at Fort Leavenworth. That really surprised the British, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand attendees who were expecting recorded music. I hope that as long as I live I can continue playing “live” bugle calls for others.

    Thank you Jari…..I am trying to get the word out here in Wisconsin and continue what I started with that other group…..I am hoping to sound Taps more and more as I just hope others are and not the fake bugle…..
