A somber Memorial Day to my readers. To commemorate the patriotic holiday that is also the unofficial start of summer, I'm sharing Taps from the United States Army Field Band.
Day is done, gone the sun from the lake, from the hills, from the sky. All is well, safely rest, God is nigh.For those of my readers who wish to hear "Taps" as a bugle call, WOOD-TV provides that, as well as a Michigan angle, in Marine Pfc. Laura Velderman plays taps.
Members of our Soldiers' Chorus honor our fallen brothers and sisters with an arrangement of the bugle call, Taps.
