Veteran Plays Taps at the Memorial

World War II veteran Robert Heaton plays taps at the Lafayette War Memorial. Upon filming, Mr. Heaton said he first played taps for WWI soldiers when he was 13.

A note on sound: After equalization proved useless to reduce the noise of background traffic, I decided to keep the sound as it was recorded. In this way I hope the sounds echo the very public presence of a memorial set in a commuter town where driving is the way of life. I hope the overheard conversation reflects the busy and communal effort of the project.
