"No organization is … as responsible for the sense of confidence that … our families would be taken care of than TAPS. And beyond what TAPS does for the families, I would tell you when you look at the courage and the discipline and the commitment of our men and women in uniform, it comes in part because of organizations like TAPS. It comes in part because of the support that’s in this room." ~ Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Joseph Dunford speaking at the 2016 TAPS Honor Guard Gala
