    Just saw the story on FNS w/Chris Wallace.


    Lifted from the site, [url]www.buglesacrossamerica.org[/URL]

    Bugles Across America, NFP was founded in 2000 by Tom Day, when Congress passed legislation stating Veterans had a right to at least 2 uniformed military people to fold the flag and play taps on a CD player.


    That's right ... a cd player.


    Tom pulls 10k from his own pocket to keep this project going.

    Years ago when I was stationed at Fort Campbell, KY, I was a funeral OIC. They ran out of buglers and gave me a tape. I was stunned and humiliated for the Army. Luckily, the American Legion found a trumpet player at a local high school. This is awesome.

    The story was a good one that made me proud. Proud of our veterans and non veterans that volunteer their time to give our fallen the honor they are due.

    I was fortunate to have a bugler for both my father (509th Airborne WW2) and my mothers (Navy Cryptologist WW2) funeral.

    The bugler was a volunteer from the local VFW that knew both my parents.

    People like your mother and father, Tom Day, and the VFW volunteer make America a great place to live.


    The lack of support by the government is shameful.
