Bugles Across America, NFP was founded in 2000 by Tom Day, when Congress passed legislation stating that Veterans have a right to at least two uniformed military people to fold the flag and play Taps on a CD player. Bugles Across America was founded to take this a step further. In recognition of the service these Veterans have provided to their country, we felt that they each deserve a live rendition of Taps by a real bugler. To this end, we are actively seeking capable volunteers to provide this valuable service to Veterans and their families.

As the Mortgage Broker & Owner of First Source VA Home Loans, I proudly pledge support to Bugles Across America and I commit that for every VA loan funded in Texas through my Brokerage Company, I will personally donate $100 to Bugles Across America in the name of our Veteran Borrower.

This contribution will be made by me personally and will not be derived in any way from any loan fees, additional charges or other costs whatsoever on any single transaction, nor do I or any family member have any financial interest in the Bugles Across America organization.

This is simply my way of HONORING those who have served!

I am a Veteran, and this is the cause I choose.
