“The other bugle it was probably from the sixty’s, I guess,” Moore said. “We had it welded a couple of times, it had come apart and it was on its last leg basically. It had been around for a while, but we were trying to make it work and so we definitely needed a new bugle.”

Farus Funeral Home owner, Matt Farus said it was their honor to donate this new bugle and the V.F.W. provides to the community veterans and this is a way for the funeral home to support them in return.

“Well the guys in the [The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S.] are phenomenal and they do a great service for everybody in the community and we had seen that they had a need,” Farus said. “We thought this would be a great way for us to step up and help out [The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S.] who helps out so many families by providing them with a bugle.”

Glenn said their old bugle can still be fixed up and used, so the local V.F.W. will look for a place that can find good use out of the old bugle.
