Accuracy in Media

From the Charlevoix Courier:

There are 400,000 or so funerals each year in the United States for military veterans and active-duty military men and women. They are entitled to a live bugler to play taps, but there are simply not enough buglers in the military to cover these services.

Filling the void is Bugles Across America, a nonprofit organization with nearly 7,000 horn-playing members nationwide who have stepped up on a volunteer basis to cover the shortage.

Bugles Across America was founded in 2000 by Tom Day, in response to federal legislation that stated “every honorably discharged veteran has a right to at least two uniformed military personnel to fold and present the flag and to sound taps for funeral honors.”
