'Taps will be sounded by a bugler each day at 5 pm to honor the memory of 4.7 million Americans who finished a fight they did not start, in a land they had never visited, for peace and liberty for people they did not know. We honor those Doughboys who did their ‘bit’ for their country.
The daily 5 pm sounding of Taps will begin Monday May 24th and continue for 25 weeks ending after Veterans Day. The call will be sounded at the foot of the flagpole at the Memorial.'
The daily sounding is with cooperation of The WWI Commission, The Doughboy Foundation, The America Battlefield Monuments Commission, the National Park Service and Taps For Veterans.
