A. Taps are a part of the military honors extended to the families of veterans who have died. It is a way for their comrades to say goodbye. Taps was first played during the Civil War. The Taps were sounded as a time of cease fire so that each side could remove the dead from the battlefield. Today, Taps are usually played at the cemetery just after the 21 Gun Salute and while the flag is held over the casket. Whether during Civil War time or today, Taps reminds us that we are caring for our dead. more
