About 100 Nights of Remembrance

The program started out as "An evening of Echo Taps" on Memorial Day 2006 when the Muchachos Drum and Bugle Corps sounded Taps in rounds at the 20 white granite monuments that surround the grand flag. That summer, buglers sounded Taps at 7 PM about a dozen times. The 100 Nights of Remembrance was born on Memorial Day 2007 when the Drum Corps was joined by several other buglers for an opening ceremony that began them on their journey to sound Taps for 100 consecutive nights.

The organization is made up of volunteers from all walks of life. Players range from business professionals to laborers, young and old, male and female, students to retirees, former military and active duty and many more. Some of the buglers are professional musicians, some are amateurs and some have learned to play a bugle or trumpet just to sound Taps. All have come together with a common goal which is to show respect and honor for all Americans who have sacrificed and served our country honorably in any branch of the United States Armed Forces.

For anyone interested in the Closing Ceremony, participating in 100 Nights of Remembrance sounding Taps, or for any questions, please email Noel Taylor, Director of 100 Nights of Remembrance at
