Two brothers playing Taps during Memorial Day programs


Washington County will be honoring fallen heroes during several Memorial Day programs on Monday, May 26. And this year, the events will feature something new — two brothers will be playing in military echo style.

Christian and Colin Kemker will be playing Taps at the gravesites, both around the county and at the service at Crown Hill Cemetery.
