Tom Day, Bugles Across America founderPatriots Hall of Honor badge sampleIn January 2000, Congress passed legislation guaranteeing Veterans the right to at least two uniformed servicemen, a flag ceremony, and the playing of TAPS at their funeral. Unfortunately, there are not enough buglers to play TAPS, so the historic melody has been played on a CD player at many Veterans' last ceremony.

Tom Day decided that wasn't good enough for those who had sacrificed so much for their country, so in November of 2000 he founded Bugles Across America (BAA), with the goal of providing TAPS played by a live bugler at every Veteran's funeral.

Tom Day started playing TAPS when he was in a drum and bugle corps since the late 1940's. He was awarded numerous citations and commendations. Tom Day's work with groups of all ages has been recognized by all levels of government and other nations.Tom Day, Bugles Across America founder

Bugles Across America now has over 7300 bugler volunteers located in all 50 states and a growing number overseas.

On December 8, 2009 U.S. Congressman Lee Terry introduced H.Con.Res 219 on the floor of Congress, recognizing and commending Tom Day's leadership and the thousands of volunteers involved with Bugles Across America for their commitment and sacrifice to ensure Veterans are laid to rest with honor and ceremony they earned through selfless service to the people of the United States in the Armed Forces.

The video below is an inspiring glimpse about this proud retired Marine bugler's noble organization, Bugles Across America and all of the other true patriots who help Tom Day to make it so.
