Bugle calls at Camp Ripley


A soldier lies in his rack sound asleep following a hard day of training.

Like clockwork, the bugle sounds in the early a.m. playing a vigorous reveille. He springs from his bed, goes into his morning routine and preps for the events of the day.

Bugle calls date back more than 2,000 years, but didn’t establish their strong presence in military life until the early 19th century.

After graduating high school in 2004, I attended Central Lakes College in Staples, MN for 2 years where I got a diploma in Communication Art and Design. I then transfered up to Bemidji State University in, you guessed it, Bemidji, MN. In the spring of 2009, I graduated from BSU. Then in the fall of 2009 I got a job at Echo Publishing, a sister company to the Brainerd Dispatch.
