Marine Veteran Plays Taps to Honor Fallen Officers
Duane LeBlanc, a former member of the Marine Corps band, performed this service numerous times before, but this time he was in his front yard, just blocks from where the shooting occurred. Taps is a military bugle call played at dusk, during flag ceremonies, and military funerals. According to The Advocate, LeBlanc, a band director at a local school, wanted to “clear his mind” and honor the slain officers after a “surreal” day.
