The National Salute - Taps For Veterans is asking you to participate in the National Salute ceremony on the 11th Hour, of the 11th Day, of the 11th Month.
Taps – The sounding of Taps across the nation and around the free world for one minute. This easily recognized emotive and powerful twenty-four note bugle call is the international melody for “lights out” — final resting for deceased service men and women. This synchronized playing of Taps around the free world by individuals and organizations is a solemn calling for the defense of free peoples worldwide.
Taps should be sounded at 1100 (Local) on Wednesday November 11, 2022. It can be performed as part of a ceremony, or because of the COVID-19 restrictions it can be performed on your front lawn or at a site of your choosing.
Thank you Canton Band members, for taking part in playing Taps!!
