Playing Taps - The Bugler's Perspective

What is it like for Buglers to play "Taps" at a funeral?  Having only one chance to "get it right" means that each performance must be flawless.  Sometimes really bad weather conditions make that a hard job.

In this clip, from West Point, hear the Buglers describe what it's like to play "Taps" (and how they prepare themselves for that important, emotion-producing moment at the cemetery).
