WASHINGTON -- Chronically short of musicians for military funerals, the Pentagon has approved the use of a push-button bugle that plays taps by itself as the operator holds it to his lips.

Only some 500 buglers are on active duty on any one day, but about 1,800 people with military service die across the country each day and are eligible for honors ceremonies, Air Force Lt. Col. Cynthia Colin, a Pentagon spokeswoman, said Thursday.

A fake bugle to honor the dead because the military doesn't have enough real buglers to do the honors.

Fake war (lies lies lies).

Fake caring (cut active & vets' pay).

Fake bugle.

Sounds OK to me.

I don't find it dignified to use a mock bugler to bury men who were ready to give there lives for there country.

It shows disrespect to there families IMO.

I agree.

I find it hard to believe that the Pentagon can't come up with enough buglers to honor our dead.

Before I read this article, I wasn't aware that recorded bugles were sometimes used.
