Congressman Tom Reed’s legislation which would designate the bugle call “Taps” as the National Song of Remembrance today passed the full House and moves on to the Senate for consideration.  The designation is included in the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012.

Now the legislation must be passed by the Senate and signed by President Obama to become law.

“We’re one step closer to our goal of winning this recognition for Taps,” Reed said. “It is a fitting gesture, and one which appropriately coincides with Memorial Day when we honor the heroes who have fallen in defense of our nation.”
