I am available and honored to play Taps at funerals for our fallen veterans.
They deserve a live bugler NOT A BOOM BOX!
Would you want a recorded sound of the 21 gun salute or pictures of flowers?
For services in the greater Omaha area my suggested fee would be $100. Plus mileage for distances over 50 miles round trip.
I have done much soul searching about my fee for playing taps at military funerals.
As a professional, I expect to be paid for this service the same as the florist, funeral director and other professionals.
However, as a patriotic American who was never in the military, I owe a debt of gratitude to our veterans which can never be repaid. Therefore, if it is a financial hardship for the bereaved family, I will play at low cost or even at no cost, if I am available.
It bears repeating,
“OUR VETERANS DESERVE A LIVE BUGLER!”
