Warriors at rest: Volunteer bugler helps honor veterans

Wayzata resident Gary Marquardt will be very busy on Veterans Day, as he is every year, by choice … even though he is not a military veteran. 

As a member of the volunteer group Bugles Across America (BAA), Marquardt goes to local cemeteries where families are decorating graves of loved ones who served, playing taps over each veterans’ grave. “I play over and over from grave to grave often with several families trailing along to share in the moment,” he says.
