A Worthy Cause

In the 1980's Congress gave every American veteran the honor of being buried with full military honors. What they did not do was ensure there would be enough military buglers to play taps for these fallen veterans. Click the title of this post to navigate to a site that hopes to provide a military bugler for each and every one of our fallen heroes. This charity is run by Tom Day, a Marine Corps veteran who believed that sufficing with playing Taps on a boombox was not good enough for our fallen protectors. He has personally trained buglers and helped others assemble uniforms. He funds much of this effort from his pension. I heard this story on the news and was compelled to offer this man a reflex salute.
