I am very excited yet extremely nervous. I live in a town that houses a large air force base. This installation is in charge of all of the NATO pilot training in the United States. The only downside is they do not have an installation band. Every morning and evening they do as most installations do, and have a recording play bugle calls. Well tonight they wanted it to be different.
So tonight at 10 pm I get to go play taps live on their parade field and it will be broadcast throughout the base. I know it isn't the biggest gig in the world, definitely doesn't pay the most, but for me, it is the most rewarding.
So, from my house to all of yours, thanks to all who serve, served, or will serve in our nations armed forces, Thanks to those who sacrificed everything so our nation can be free. And thanks to those who support the men and women of our armed forces, with out your support we would be nothing.
