We are the Hopkins County (Texas) Military
Coalition. We were formed in late 1996 from local
American Legion, VFW, DAV and public folks who desired to
honor our veterans with military graveside honors, including
a firing squad and flag folding. We also present to
the next of kin a framed plaque with the deceased veteran's
Since our inception we have performed 330
funerals in a County of 30,000 population. We had to

We were among the first to use your bugle.
We are extremely happy with the sound and quality. A
record player is no comparison. Folks think our bugler
is actually playing the instrument. The loved ones will
forever remember the beautiful, somber, reverent tones

We have ordered the multi call insert because
our scope has grown. We now are asked to perform at
flag raisings, presenting colors at assemblies, parades,
public meetings and innumerable events. This insert
will be of great help.
We thank you for your efforts developing this
much needed outstanding product.

Thanks for the info. We do have a
ceremonial bugle and are very proud of it. Our Honor
Guard has used it at many funerals since we purchased it.
Again, thank you.
