Twenty-four notes. It's a simple melody, 150 years old, that can
express our gratitude when words fail. Taps honors the men and
women who have laid down their lives and paid the ultimate
sacrifice for the cause of freedom. Fair winds and following seas,

Taps - YouTube

I'm glad you posted this, too. Something about Taps that bring a proverbial chill up the spine, sort of thing. I can get misty eyes easily, too. Maybe partly Pavlovian from the times I've heard them in person, or....no, just the powerful reason we are hearing them.

Thank you each and every one, wherever and whomever you are.

Thanks for sharing your pictures. But, ScoPro's picture is the most heart breaking for me.

I want to say that on this memorial day my family and I thought of those who have fallen in service to this country and those who are serving now.
