Thanks Bastian. I was driving around the cemetery, stopped at the monument at the top of the hill, then drove down, and saw the pallbearers' carriage sitting there, and the thunderbolt hit me. Pulled over and shot from many angles. While I was there, two members of the base honor guard arrived, and since it was Veterans' Day, I thought they were there for a ceremony. Turns out there was a funeral scheduled to arrive, so I wrapped up my shooting so I wouldn't disturb the service. As I was leaving, I thanked the two members for doing such a difficult task as part of their military duties. It still irks me though, that Taps is no longer played live unless the family arranges for a bugler to do it. The bugle they use has a player inside and they adjust the volume.
