With the event's currently happening in the world, many might feel overwhelmed. The Military Crisis Line is staffed by caring, qualified responders from VA. Many are Veterans themselves. They understand what Service members have been through and the challenges that members of the military and their loved ones face.
The 100 Nights Project is currently in need of new volunteers to reach out to community groups and to organize and schedule musicians to play Taps. There is an immediate need for this year and going forward into the future. Assistance can be a single person or a group of people. Boy Scouts considering an Eagle Scout Project, Veteran’s Groups interested in keeping the project going, or anyone interested in serving the community is welcomed. Assistance will be provided. We are also looking for musicians to play Taps. If you are interested or would like to learn more, please email Denise at firstname.lastname@example.org

Proper Procedures for Sounding Taps
As we are in the middle of this year's season, we would like to remind everyone the proper and respectful way to sound Taps.
1. Arrive at the Cemetery early
2. Warm up near your vehicle in the parking lot
3. Quietly and respectfully move to the area where Taps are sounded
4. Stand at ease until the bells ring (applies to the Veteran's Cemetery only)
5. At 7:00 pm come to attention and sound Taps
6. After sounding Taps, take a few minutes to talk with anyone in attendance. At this time please refrain from shaking hands and respect the 6 foot separation rule that is currently in effect.
Since 2005 to the present, members of 100 Nights of Remembrance sound taps at the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery in Boscawen, NH and The Mount Calvary Cemetery in Manchester, NH every evening rain or shine at 7:00 PM from Memorial Day through September 11th. After the 100 consecutive nights closing ceremonies, taps is then sounded once a week on Sunday afternoons at 1:00 PM Rain, shine or even snow until the opening ceremony each Memorial Day. 100 Nights of Remembrance is dedicated to honoring and paying the highest respect to those who have served in our Armed Forces and all our fallen heroes. The public is welcome to attend these solemn ceremonies. “So We May Never Forget”
