Military bugler performs at 10,000th service

Saunderstown, RI

Michael Joseph Jackson, military funeral honors bugler. plays Taps at the state of Rhode Island veterans cemetery in Exeter, Rhode Island or any other military funeral around state.

Jackson, who has just played his 10,000 funeral for veterans, gives of himself unselfishly, sometimes four times a day in rain, shine, sleet or snow. That's how he got the nickname Iron Mike aka Action Jackson.

I recently met Jackson through a mutual friend after attending a service for a military member. Recently I saw this picture on Facebook and really gave it some serious thought into the task and dedication put forth by the people who do these honors for passed members of military. If you ever met this person, you would have a lifetime great feeling in your heart.
