Vandenberg Honor Guard Strives for Excellence
Senior Airman Daniella Boni, Vandenberg Honor Guard ceremonial guardsmen, plays taps with the bugle during a U.S. Air Force active duty funeral March 2, 2019, in Camarillo, Calif. Taps is a bugle call played at dusk on military installations, during flag ceremonies and at military funerals by the United States Armed Forces. Taps replaced the formal Lights Out in 1862 when Union General Daniel Adams Butterfield dedicated the song to honor 600 men who were killed in battle.
