Lawton Man Plays Bugle at JFK Anniversary Ceremony

LAWTON Okla_ A Cameron University student participated in the event of a lifetime in Washington.

Joseph Kinsman was invited to participate as a bugler at the observation of the 50th anniversary of the funeral of JFK.  At the Taps for Veterans ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery, 100+ buglers played Taps, followed by a four-part harmonized arrangement of the song. Afterward, buglers dispersed to assigned locations throughout the cemetery to play Taps at noon for all buried there. Joseph played at the Tomb of the Civil War Unknowns, next to Arlington House above the cemetery. 

Joseph is a junior music major at Cameron, president of the Kappa Kappa Psi music fraternity at Cameron, a 2011 graduate of Eisenhower High School, and a former member of the Screaming Eagle Marching Band. Since he was a sophomore in high school, he has played Taps at quarterly memorial services for residents of the Veteran's Center who have passed on, and also most recently played Taps at the Veteran's Day observation at Cameron.  Personally, he considered the event on Saturday not only for JFK's funeral, but also in honor of his father, whose combat patch hung from his bugle, and for Chin Sun Pak Wells, also an Eisenhower graduate, who died in the Pentagon on 9/11.  See her page at the Arlington website at http://www.arlingtoncemetery.net/cspwells.htm

Taps for Veterans is a web-based organization that facilitates locating competent, trained, live buglers to perform the honorable duty of sounding Taps at military funerals and ceremonies.
