I've been a horn player for over 30 years and for the past 20 years I have sounded TAPS for over 3500 details. When I show up for a detail, I feel it's the last nicest thing that I can do for someone. These are the times when I feel my service is most pure. I don't do this to receive a pat on the back or even a thank you. I do it to serve. I'm personally grateful because it has given me a place to serve those who have served.
My mission is to educate people on the significance and history of TAPS, why it is important to have a live Bugler and to sound TAPS in all 50 states.
