Joyce Happersett Comment

  1. On behalf of Bugles Across America, please accept our sincere condolences. If it would be of comfort to have a live bugler sound Taps at this ceremony for your loved one, please feel free to either contact us directly or fill in the “Request a Bugler” form on our website at Please be aware that today almost all military and civilian honor guards play Taps using a recording device.

    We are a nationwide volunteer organization, we provide this service free of charge, and we do not require DD214 discharge papers to perform Taps for veterans. We also provide this service for law enforcement officers, fire fighters and other first responders.

    With deepest sympathy,

    Roger Ellis – State Director for Arizona
    Mitzi Ellis – Assistant State Director for Arizona
