Join Alpena EAST for Echo TAPS in Honor of Specialist Bryn Raver


8/15/2013 4:24:53 PM

EAST students to honor fallen soldier, former classmate.

Please join us in the playing of TAPS near your school flagpole in honor of U.S. Army Spec. Bryn T. Raver on September 11, at 4:45pm. Bryn was a former classmate of the Alpena High School graduating class of 2008. He died doing what he loved, serving his country for which he was willing to die. Bryn was killed in Afghanistan on August 28, 2010.

If you participate, please send a note or photo of the person playing TAPS to the Alpena Veterans Outreach Committee in care of Randy Lane, Alpena EAST Facilitator, Alpena High School, P.O. Box 270, Alpena, AR 72611 or

The photos and notes will be placed on a card to be sent to Bryn's immediate family. We hope that there is never another Soldier or Marine casualty of war — but if there is, we will extend this same tribute. We don't do this to draw attention, but as a tribute to those who served. Alpena EAST believes that this is the least we can do.
