In honor of Memorial Day, Marine Band trumpet players will sound “Taps” at three ceremonies on Monday, May 26; all are free and open to the public.
The City of Falls Church, Va., will host its annual Memorial Day parade and festival with a ceremony honoring veterans at 11 a.m. At noon, the town of Vienna, Va., will feature a Memorial Day tribute during its Viva! Vienna! Celebration. And later that day at 4 p.m., a ceremony will take place at the Women In Military Service For America Memorial in Arlington, Va., as part of a Memorial Day service.
“As members of the Marine Band, observing and performing on Memorial Day is really important to us,” said trumpet player Master Sgt. Susan Rider. “We’re grateful for the opportunity to honor our service members past and present.”
