I made a Request for a Bugler, and got the email with a response, but there were no buglers listed.

Some of our buglers have elected to keep their contact information private. However, if there are buglers in your area, we have notified them of your request, and provided your contact information to them. If any of them are available for your memorial or event, they will contact you.

TapsForVeterans.org cannot guarantee to find a bugler to fulfill your request. If we do find buglers, we cannot guarantee their availability.

Are there Buglers near me?

Visit our Bugler Map. Please note that the map is updated monthly, so even if you don’t see any near you, we may have added some recently.

Not all buglers are available all the time. There may be buglers outside your search radius who are willing to travel to your memorial or event. Regardless of whether buglers are located within your search radius, we encourage you to request a bugler.
