Reveille

"Reveille" is a bugle call, trumpet call or pipes call most often associated with the military; it is chiefly used to wake military personnel at sunrise. The name comes from "réveillé" (or "réveil"), the French word for "wake up".

British Army Cavalry and Royal Horse Artillery Regiments sound a call different from the Infantry version shown below known as The Rouse but often misnamed 'Reveille', while the Scottish Regiments of the British Army sound a pipes call of the same name. Source: Wikipedia

This clip is a bit long, but well worth the time to watch. It made me cry. God bless all those that have served or are serving this great country.
