Digital Bugles Were Not To Be Allowed

Editor:

When the BAA and the Veterans Administration arranged the EchoTaps event, it was clearly stated that there will be no electronic horns allowed. I have a whole lot of respect for my fellow veterans and for MSgt. Larry Moore for his dedication, but the use of a digital bugle is wrong.

I perform, on average, 20 to 25 funerals a week.

The commitment to all national and state cemeteries, which took place during the EchoTaps event around the world was for the performance of "live Taps." It was be performed in the key of G, which the fake horn is not in tune with.
