Signals the troops to awaken for morning roll call. Used to accompany the raising of the National Colors. The name comes from the French word for "wake up".
The time varies from base to base. On U.S. Army posts, the flag is raised while Reveille is played (on board U.S. Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard facilities, the flag is generally raised at 0800 while the National Anthem or the bugle call "To the Colors" is played). As it is played uniformed personnel are required to come to attention and present a salute either to the flag or in the direction of the music if the flag is not visible.
