He's from Bridgeville, PA and was one of the more than one-hundred buglers who took part today. He's a WWII vet who served in Europe. Over 100 buglers participated in 'A Bugle Call Remembered: Taps at the Funeral of President John F. Kennedy,' at Arlington National Cemetery today. The buglers from over two dozen U.S. states converged to participate in the event to honor the 50th anniversary of the funeral for JFK. They met up as a group at the Old Amphitheater early in the day and played together before spreading out over various spots on the grounds at 12:00 noon so as to play taps in unison for all of the citizens buried there.
