Not a bad idea. I will be in my military tunic with my medals. My national guard unit was activated on 22 Aug, 1917, (my birthday is on the 21st), and part of the expeditionary force sent to France to fight on the Western Front. After two years fighting in France, it was then sent back to (then) Camp Devens in MA (where I live now), and deactivated.
Its kind of exciting for me to participate in this, as both my home community AND my national guard unit were active for that conflict.

I emailed them but haven't heard back yet. I'm sure there's plenty of time between now and then to expect a response though!

Apparently they're gonna send out certificates and post the names of the participants in the Piping Times magazine. I was emailing them about registration.

Received the following email a day after I volunteered to participate:

Thank you for registering for 'Battle’s Over’. A list of those taking part will be published in the ‘Piping Times’ each month along with being included in a special ‘Battle’s Over’ publication after the event next year.

It is planned for next summer that the Society of Editors will be sent a complete list of all those who have registered and their locations. This is so that local media can have the option of sending photographers and/or cameramen to capture this once-in-a-lifetime tribute.

Thank you once again.

I got my reply as well. Are any of you in Southern California and interested in participating together? I know it's a ways off, but it might be cool to have a large group of pipers meet for this event.

Man am I glad you said something, I never even noticed the 2018 date.

I would have looked a complete idiot piping by myself at 6 in the morning!

Thanks dsb0628. These Piping lads like to plan ahead.
