Today, I was moved to tears my friends. Literally. I had asked the folks there at B.A.A. if there was any way they could help me find another horn as mine had been destroyed in a move. I didn't think much of ever actually hearing back from anybody because I know how hard times are.
However...As I was leaving my home to go pick my wife up from wor, a U.P.S. truck pulled up and asked me if my name was Tony Tincher. I of course said yes, and the man promptly handed me a box. I looked at the return address and saw Mr. Tom Day ond B.A.A. on it and my heart leaped as a huge frog began to creep into my throat I opened the box and Behold.. rite there, in front of me in a beautiful case was a gorgeous, Traditional Style Valveless Cavalry BUGLE!! Exactly like the one I have played at several events.
All I can say is Ain't America GREAT?
God Bless Bugles Across America, and God Bless America and her Hero's.
Thank you so very much, now with a little practice, as I have been out a while I will be able to follow...

A message from Bugler, Founder , and President of BAA....
At the start of 2010 I had an offer from a friend to help raise funds for what we do. Sounded great. Problem was they needed to get more involved with the BAA web site. The other problem came up about March when Dave Krause our long time Web Master had to take some time for his business. So the result was we had people tell us "No Problem" they could do this better, oddly that was around April 1st. Not being an IT man I said please help. The man they got was Dan Petrek who did his best.
Then we found IT Architechs in St. Louis. They were suggested by State Director and EAST National Director Howard Reitenbaugh, Pa. So, for the past month or so they have been converting BAA into a working unit again using the same format Dave Krause used. Dot-Net-Nuke. All this cost me a few dollars but now well worth it. In the future when all Directors are tuned in as to how to operate the system we will be well ahead of where we were in January 2010 .

Saturday Nov 13th in a small town in rural Illinois the sight of Old glory lined the streets and was in everyone's hands. The sounds of motorcycles echoed through the cool brisk air as the Patriot Guard riders came to town to help say goodbye to Staff Sgt Jordon Emrick who Died while serving in the Marines in Afghanistan. He was part of the EOD and was killed by a road side bomb as his squad was patrolling. Thankfully we did not hear the sounds of hate echoing through the air from the so called Church of Wesburo Kansas as they did not show up for whatever reason. I had the Honor of sounding those 24 notes for the Hometown Hero. It was an awe inspiring sight to see everyone come out to help support the family. Some came from over 100 miles away and didn't even know anyone there. Staff Sgt. Jordan Emrick :"Taps" has been sounded signifying the end of the day. Rest in Peace young Soldier your duty is done. We will meet again one day that I am sure of.
