Buglers with the U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) band proudly perform a moving rendition of Taps for U.S. troops who made the ultimate sacrifice since our nation's fight for independence ... and are honored every Memorial Day that is observed on the last Monday of May.
It is also a reminder about the National Moment of Remembrance that was established by Congress, asking Americans wherever they are at 3 p.m., local time, on Memorial Day to pause in an act of national unity (duration: one minute) ... The National Moment of Remembrance does not replace traditional Memorial Day events; rather it is an act of national unity in which all Americans, alone or with family and friends, honor those who died for our freedom. It will help to reclaim Memorial Day as the sacred and noble holiday it was meant to be.
The United States Army Training and Doctrine Command is a major command of the United States Army headquartered at Fort Eustis, Virginia. It is charged with overseeing training of Army forces and the development of operational doctrine.
