A trumpet player that graduated from New Berlin Eisenhower and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee has won a big honor from the U.S. Navy.
"It was a little bit of a shock," said Petty Officer Brandon Almagro, who was named the 2014 United States Navy Band Sailor of the Year.
Almagro has performed taps close to 1,000 times now, but he said he still gets nervous. His most high profile performance was playing taps in front of the president and TV cameras at the Memorial Day celebration in Arlington.
Almagro has been in the Navy band since 2005.
