Wisconsin Students Train to Play Taps for Veterans

The Youth Trumpet & Taps Corps held a Taps Training Clinic in Milwaukee on August 24th, 2015.

Eight Wisconsin high school students actively participated in the recent Taps for Veterans training held in Milwaukee County War Memorial Center on August 24, 2015. We are happy to announce we now have volunteers in Glendale, Menomonee Falls, Monroe, Sussex, Waukesha, and Wauwatosa.


The new volunteers held a donation drive and collected over 220 toiletry items to be donated to the Milwaukee VA Medical Center for veterans in need.

The event was made possible with the help and support of the American Legion Post #18, Rozga Funeral Homes, and the Karma for Cara Foundation.


Students will be eligible to earn $25 college tuition vouchers for each funeral served in accordance with 2003 Wisconsin Act 42 which formed the Taps tuition voucher program facilitated by the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs.
