BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - A bugle used by the American Legion’s honor guard that was stolen during a break-in has been returned.

Bozeman American Legion post commander Jim Howe says an unidentified man went to the American Legion bar and gave the bugle to a bartender.

The bugle was stolen during a burglary at the Bozeman American Legion post over the past weekend. Post officials said they wanted it back, no questions asked.

According to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle (https://tinyurl.com/zr3rpbc ), the bugle has been used to play Taps at about 80 military burials a year since 2009.
