Two members of the West Point Band’s Hellcats perform Taps at a funeral.

Next Thursday, the West Point Band will play the funeral of General Norman Schwarzkopf, the commander of troops in the first Persian Gulf War. Over the coming week, we will bring you content about what the band goes through to prepare for such a public funeral. We will talk about how the musician in the band, the taps bugler, and how the drum major prepare for such a large funeral. Be sure to check back often as we prepare for this solemn occasion.
