The National Moment of Remembrance is an annual event that asks Americans, wherever they are at 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day, to pause for a duration of one minute to remember those who have died in military service to the United States.
The time 3 p.m. was chosen because it is the time when most Americans are enjoying time off from work for the national holiday. The Moment was first proclaimed in May 2000 for Memorial Day that year, and was put in law by the United States Congress in December 2000.
It would be fitting to remember those who died in service to our country as well as those who have died of the COVID-19 virus and also to honor those who are on the front lines battling the disease by sounding Taps on Memorial Day, May 31th at 3 pm (local). You can sound the call from wherever you feel appropriate.
If you would like to, you can make a video of your performance and post it online on the TAPS FOR VETERANS FACEBOOK PAGE
Please follow all of your local guidelines regarding gatherings due to the COVID-19.
How to get involved:
Make sure you practice Taps. You can download the music at TapsBugler.com

Tell your neighbors and friends, and ask them to participate by taking a moment of silence at 3 pm.
