I attended a Memorial Day program in Pasco. The program was awesome, very touching, up until TAPS was played, then it became totally embarrassing and a disgrace to the men and women honored.
How many of you realize that a fake was used? The sound was terrible and tinny. The person playing the fake trumpet knew that there was a world-class trumpeter at the program because she is the state chaplain for the American Legion and played the national anthem. And he knows her, she is no ordinary trumpet player, she has played all over the world, played on the Johnny Carson show when a girl, performed in Las Vegas, but so he would look important he put on this embarrassing personal show.
Shame, shame on you; our warriors deserve much more.
