Bugles Across America

• Help Hospitalized Veterans supports having this sacred music played by a live bugler at gravesite and is a proud sponsor of this important initiative.

• Veterans have a legislated right to at least two uniformed service members, a flag ceremony, and the playing of TAPS at their funerals.

• With an expected half-million veterans dying every year, there are often not enough buglers to provide a live rendition at every burial. Many burials had the historic melody played on an electronic bugle or CD player.

• Tom Day founded BAA in 2001, recruiting more than 2,800 buglers to play TAPS at veterans’ funerals. BAA has volunteers in all 50 states and overseas.
