Bugles Across America

Bugles Across America

Bugles Across America, NFP was founded in 2000 by Tom Day, when Congress passed legislation stating that Veterans have a right to at least two uniformed military people to fold the flag and play Taps on a CD player. Bugles Across America was founded to take this a step further.  In recognition of the service these Veterans have provided to their country, we felt that they each deserve a live rendition of Taps by a real bugler.

The motto, “SOUND THE HONOR – HONOR THE SOUND” is meant to express the desire that each volunteer bugler be available as much as possible to honor veterans with the ‘live’ sounding of TAPS.

Robert Solomonson lives in Fort Scott and is a local member of Bugles Across America. He is available as a Bugler for military graveside services and other memorial services in the Southeast Kansas area.

His service is strictly voluntary; no compensation is required. Robert can be contacted at telephone number (620)704-7373 or by email at  teachbd@aol.com.

Area musicians who play the Trumpet, Cornet, Flugelhorn or a Bugle can contact https://www.buglesacrossamerica.org/ for more information on becoming a volunteer bugler at  Veterans funerals or other memorial services.
