    • I hope no one has to witness one, but a military funeral is one of the most beautiful and devastating things to watch. Thank you to the men and women who participate and present the flag. It means more than you know

    • Playing Taps by yourself for a veteran's day assembly in front of a bunch of old, grizzled vets, watching some break down to tears remembering those they have lost, it weighs heavy on the soul, knowing what some of my brothers and sisters in arms have gone through.

    • I have heard that song 137 times. It hits each and every time. Mostly do veteran funerals, people who served long before more. But I’ve buried 7 of my brothers and sisters, most of those were suicides. Even 1 is too damn high...

    • Why are so many people acting like hes a bad guy for not playing Taps for every death ever? Hes just trying to honor those who passed during a pandemic. What have any of you couch potatoes done to honor the deceased. I personally dont do much, that's why this man has my upmost respect.

    • They count anyone who does with Covid as a Covid death. So if I were to test positive, then drive off a cliff, that would be a Covid death. Numbers are actually very low.

But when you know the history behind it you salute with pride and respect for all those that wore your uniform, past fallen brothers.
