Just thought I would add that I lost my dad in February to a brain tumer and because he was a veteran of WWII, he was buried at the VA cemetery.
An interesting note...my sister-in-law's brother, Woody English, is the one who actually recorded the "Taps" that is played at all of the burials for veterans. He is in the U.S. Military Band and has also played at 100's of governmental/presidential occasions. He even played at Sono Bono's funeral.
He came through Indiana in May and we were all very honored to have another service at the VA cemetery where Woody played "for my Dad" in person...my Dad felt very privileged to have served his country and I know he would have been touched to hear Woody played.
Just thought I'd add this...I pray you all have a PF day!
