The Daily Taps Program
Remember and Honor those who served with a personalized sounding of Taps.
Every day without fail, at 5pm Eastern, Taps sounds at the National World War I Memorial in honor of our nation’s heroes.
This unique Daily Taps Ceremony pays tribute to all who have served in the armed forces of the United States, and those who perished in the ‘war that changed the world.’
So that these heroes are never forgotten, the Daily Taps Program offers a unique opportunity to dedicate a personalized sounding of Taps for your loved veteran, on a day of your choosing.
