I find beauty in this song. Doesnt need any words or music video. It broke my heart when this started! The buglers of The United States Army Band «Pershing’s Own» perform over 5000 missions a year in Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, VA.

Only truly amazing trumpet or bugle players are able to keep such amazing tuning in snow like that. I love to listen to taps and I love the words that go with them, not more people know the words.

The Arlington National Cemetery is a moving experience for those that visit the grounds. The soldiers laid to rest at the U.S. military cemetery date as far back to the American Civil War (and earlier, as there are reinterred dead from earlier wars).

When you see the white headstones lining the cemetery and its 624 acres (253 ha) it’s hard not to be moved to tears reflecting on all the brave men and women who have lost their lives over the centuries.

And sometimes, the sound of a bugle can be heard on the grounds. In fact, the buglers of The United States Army Band “Pershing’s Own” perform over 5000 missions a year in Arlington National Cemetery. Ever since the Civil War, “Taps” has been played during military functions. It is one of the central elements at funerals to honor a fallen soldier.
