The story of the 19th is a story of Airmen

Greg Otey, at the Air Force Memorial Oct. 8 in Arlington, Va.

History of Taps
At the stroke of 8 p.m., a wistful tune resonates across Little Rock Air Force Base. The tune is known as “Taps” and is played in the evening hours at military installations to remember those who have fallen while serving our country.
