Memorial Day is the holiday set aside to remember the men and women who gave their lives while serving this country. To say thank you for their supreme sacrifice.
Because parades and gatherings are cancelled this Memorial Day weekend, retired Air Force bugler Jari Villanueva and CBS News “On the Road” correspondent Steve Hartman are asking buglers and trumpet players across the country to stand on their porches this Memorial Day at 3 p.m. local time and play “Taps.”
The rest of us can pause for a moment to remember the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice serving this country as well as all the victims of the coronavirus pandemic while maintaining social distancing guidelines.
If you’d like to dust off your trumpet or bugle and sound the call, click here for directions on how to participate.
If you’re not a bugler then perhaps you can play a version of Taps from YouTube like this one.
Celebrating Memorial Day was tough during the Covid-19 Pandemic but we did it. We had a small get together for dinner did our best to social distance. It was good to seeing some of the family. Since we’re in Yellow phase, we were good because we were under 10 people.
Hope you had a good Memorial if you celebrated it.
Sounds like you had a lovely day in spite of the limitations. Good for you, Crystal.
Our stay home date was moved out again. We’re in a large city where folks aren’t good at social distancing so we stayed in and watched the PBS Memorial Day Concert. Kinda nice. With our military background it’s kind of a sad day remembering friends who didn’t make it home.
Thanks for sharing.
