I’ve had the honor of playing Taps for military funerals and more recently Taps Across America. It started originally as a way to commemorate Memorial Day during the COVID pandemic with performers sounding Taps in their neighborhood during the National Moment of Remembrance on Memorial Day. 

How can you participate? If you already play trumpet or cornet, you can register below in time to participate on Memorial Day at the following link:  HERE

If you don’t play, you and your family can still honor the heroes that have given the ultimate sacrifice by simply observing a moment of silence at 3:00 pm on Memorial Day and playing the video link of Taps by several members of The U.S. Amry Band, Pershing’s Own.
