Talons for TAPS

Talons for TAPS is an initiative to serve those in our community who have served us, the community, and the country. Talons for TAPS mission is to send members of the University of Louisiana at Monroe trumpet studio to perform TAPS live for our service member’s memorial/burial services. We do this at no cost to the families of the deceased service member.

In addition to our mission to serve the community, we seek to enrich the experience of the students by bringing current and former military trumpeters to share their expertise and experience. By doing this, we are able to fully impress upon our students the importance of TAPS, it’s history, and why we honor those who have served our country.
