Missouri Tapped for New Military Bugle Debut

By Tom Weber, KWMU

St. Louis, MO –

Starting today, Friday November 8th, there will be a new way of playing "Taps" at military funerals.

Missouri is the test state for a new bugle that plays the song without requiring musical ability.

As KWMU's Tom Weber reports, if the new bugles are a hit in Missouri, they could soon be used nationwide.
