66-Year-Old Teaches Himself to Play the Trumpet to Play Taps for Fallen Soldiers

Published

A 66-year-old man found a new way to honor those who lose their lives fighting for our country.

Gary ­Marquardt from Minnesota who is now almost 70, “started playing the trumpet after attending a military funeral, where he heard Taps played on a recording instead of live,” according to Liftable.

Feeling that a simple recording of the military song to commemorate fallen soldiers did not do justice for the funeral, Marquardt decided to help make sure these heroes got the funeral they deserved. Marquardt walks around a local cemetery every day looking for headstones with a flag so he can honor the soldiers.

Marquardt says the soldiers name, plays Taps, and leaves a penny on the headstone. The penny is meant to be a “symbol of the pittance of his service compared to theirs.” He also volunteers with Bugles Across America around 100 times a year to play Taps at military funerals.

“I don’t play perfect every time – I really try to, but I’m there representing all of us and it comes from the heart,” he said.

Illinois Court Approves Extradition of 17-Year-Old Kyle Rittenhouse to Wisconsin on Murder Charges

Michelle Malkin has reported the unfortunate news.

Right-wing pundit Michelle Malkin broke some very unfortunate news for anyone who hopes to see justice for 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, the shooter who became an American hero after shooting two ANTIFA terrorists in self-defense at a riot in Kenosha, Wisc. in August.

Malkin has been publishing updates about Rittenhouse’s case throughout the day:

Unfortunately for Rittenhouse, the motion filed by his lawyers to prevent extradition was denied by the Lake County Circuit Court on Friday. It is feared that this will lead to Rittenhouse receiving a politically-motivated kangaroo court trial in which he will be tried as an adult.

“According to Illinois law, this Illinois court shall not rule on the State of Wisconsin’s statutes that charge a 17-year-old as an adult. According to Illinois law, an Illinois court cannot opine on the safety or alleged lack thereof of Rittenhouse in the State of Wisconsin,” the court stated in their decision

“These questions…are not to be addressed in an Illinois extradition proceeding. These are matters that can be raised in Kenosha County, Wisconsin, through pre-trial proceedings or during trial,” they added.

Malkin posted the full extradition ruling on her Twitter account, noting that Rittenhouse’s legal team is already working on an appeal:

Big League Politics has reported about Rittenhouse’s capture and how the establishment wants to make an example of him so patriots have no recourse but to submit to ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter terrorism:

The attorney for 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse appeared on Fox News’ Tucker Carlson Tonight on Monday to defend his client against a smear campaign meant to destroy his reputation as he faces first-degree murder charges for shooting three communists at a riot in Kenosha, Wisc. last week.

“This is 100 percent self-defense,” Rittenhouse’s lawyer John Pierce said. “The only individuals Kyle shot were the three individuals attacking him and putting him at risk. This is a 17-year-old kid, this is amazing what he did.”

Pierce explained that Rittenhouse was being menaced by pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum, who is now dead. Rosenbaum was “leading the attack” and “began to assault him from behind, attempted to take his weapon, take his firearm, and Kyle, when he turned, he instantaneously had no choice but to defend himself by firing because he was in imminent danger of serious bodily harm or death.”

“They began screaming that Kyle needed to be killed, and they were going to kill him. They started relentlessly hunting him as prey as he ran down the street attempting to retreat,” Pierce said.

Pierce said that the individuals who were attacking Rittenhouse ought to be charged, and the fact that Rittenhouse is in jail right now is a disgrace.

“Where are the charges for aggravated assault against Kyle Rittenhouse? Where are the charges for arson in our cities? Where are the charges for rioting? Where are the charges for crossing state lines? And where are the charges against the people who are funding this activity?” Pierce asked.

“Why is [Kyle] the one sitting in jail tonight as forces within this country sickeningly attempt to find a way to bring harm to him while he’s in detention?” he continued.

“It is sickening,” Carlson responded.

Rittenhouse is in the fight for his life, and the court system is not likely to do him any favors as he struggles to reclaim his lost freedom.
