Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionHopkinsville, KY – U.S. Army Spc. Aidan Sandel, 101st Airborne Division Band, stood at the ready holding his bugle Saturday, December 15th, 2018, before the Wreaths Across America remembrance wreath-laying ceremony at Kentucky Veterans Cemetery-West.

He would play “Taps” as the ceremony drew to an end.

“It is a great honor, absolutely,” Sandel said of being part of the ceremony. “‘Taps’ is kind of a precarious piece to play. There is always that little bit of worry that it will not sound right.”

To ensure he gets the notes just right, Sandel said he practices the poignant bugle call often.
