Kansas Marine Corps Vet, Bugler Volunteers to Play Taps
A Marine Corps Veteran in Wichita has been volunteering his time to play what many call the 24 hardest notes a musician will ever play... Taps. Few melodies are as easily recognized - or as emotional - as this tune, which has become a standard at military funerals. Today, there are so few buglers available that the military cannot always provide one. KMUW's Abigail Wilson presents this sound portrait with Tim Emerson, a member of the group Bugles Across America.
