I surely hope that the picture that is accompanied your article on "EchoTaps" is purely staged. That gentleman is holding (and not very well, at that) one of the fake bugles -- the digital bugle. It plays a recording at the push of a button. We are trying, as your article states, to promote the use of a live bugler to honor our service men and women. By "live bugler," we mean someone who is actually moving air through the horn to sound "Taps."
If you would check out the home page of www.echotaps.org you would see that it plainly states "no digital bugles" are to be used for this event.
