The bad news is it was a funeral playing Taps. It was my first time to play Taps. I'm not the typical "A" personality trumpet player, so it was a little intimidating. The Navy Color Guard that showed up had a bugle with an electronic device in the bell that played Taps. They let me check it out and it was pretty cool. They just hold it so no ones sees the device and fake the playing. After the service they caught up with me and complimented my playing. I thought that was really nice of them considering they didn't have to say anything. It made me feel pretty good. I wonder if I would have gotten the same compliment if I would have shared with them I am a Marine. I had debated wearing my Class C, but I wasn't sure if they were authorized for funerals, so I just wore a suit. Anyway... I was pretty excited about it and wanted to share.
