Alex Davis, a blind 23-year-old New Hampshire native, had been playing taps for West Fargo VFW Post 7564 for about two years when she was told recently that club members would be handling all of the honor guard duties, including playing taps using a bugle fitted with an electronic device.

A bugler who left West Fargo, N.D., on a sour note after the local VFW club told her it no longer required her services said she's excited about the opportunity to play taps in a different city.


Alex Davis, who has been blind since birth, moved last weekend to Warroad, Minn., where she will participate in honor guard during military funerals as needed by the American Legion and VFW.
