    I really like this picture.

    My niece has been helping a VFW group with military burial rights as a trumpet player. Her grandfather is a Vietnam vet and he has been asking her to assist with several military burials. I do not know the vet that is being honored but I am proud of my niece for using her talents in this way. Thanks Holly!

    Yes, tell her thanks for wnat she does.

    A friend of mine plays the bagpipes, and he says the greatest moment of his life was when he was asked to play them at the funeral of Roy Rogers.

    The people that give their time and talents to the gone but not forgotten vets are special people indeed, thanks to all of em.

    God Bless your neice Holly. What a shining example of todays youth, she's better than one in a million. Wish I could see what she is like 30 years from now. She is an out standing citizen already. Best wishes, Bob

    At my father's burial, the local VFW did not have anyone to play Taps so they came with a boom box and a tape recording. So glad that your niece is doing this. BTW, as an retired Air Force Major, I always remember the organ player in the funeral home playing the Air Force Hymn as we carried him out. "Off we go into the wild blue yonder..."
