Encouraging civilian Taps bugler volunteers to proactively get involved in their communities to sound Taps at military honors funerals. Today, only 20% of services will have a live bugler, the others will receive Taps on a recorded device. If only 20% get a bugler today, what will be like in 50 years? The mission of Operation Taps is to save that tradition.
