After The Bugles, Corp.

After The Bugles is a charitable (501c3) media and event production company,

formed by Babb & Sottile, which specializes in raising funds for veterans in need.



"No Matter The Need"

“Whatever the war, whatever the politics, whatever the injury,

the Disabled American Veterans Organization, DAV 

marches to the mandate of the veteran’s need.”




A fast-paced video of interviews with veterans, caregivers, volunteers, plus of the MA/DAV leadership with the purpose of informing the public, previewing the full documentary and raising funds.


The title of the short and future documentary is “No Matter the Need.”  It embodies the theme of the DAV which assists veterans regardless of their need.  Be they blind, paralyzed, amputees, suffering from post traumatic shock disorder, “PTSD,” or just financially down on their luck, the DAV is there.


People joining our all-volunteer armed services enlist for a specific tour of duty.  Sadly, for many wounded, that tour becomes a lifetime of disability.


Whatever is the price one should pay for one’s country becomes a moot point after an injury.  Therefore, the real question is what are the projects, which congressionally chartered organizations, charitable organizations, and

individual citizens should provide to support our nation’s protectors?

SHARON MA - With words and action, two South Shore telecommunications veterans have crafted a video they hope will help improve care for disabled veterans.

Titled ‘‘After the Bugles,’’ the 7-minute trailer focuses on the work of the Disabled American Veterans’ Massachusetts chapter, and producers John David Sottile and Lawrence E. Babb plan to expand it to a much longer documentary.

‘‘Most people think the government takes care of veterans,’’ said Sottile, who lives and works on the South Shore for a nonprofit he and Babb founded. ‘‘But there are some that fly under their radar.’’ Added Babb, a Milton native now in Norwood: ‘‘People need to see and hear (veterans) speak.’’ The Massachusetts DAV endorses the video.

‘‘It’s reaching out and is going to talk about what disabled veterans go through,’’ said Dan Stack, a department adjutant with the state DAV. ‘‘A great deal has to be done ...to make sure (veterans) are taken care of.’’

The DAV advocates for veterans who have been denied medical services by the Department of Veterans Affairs, recruits volunteers to drive veterans to medical appointments and gives financial assistance to veterans.

‘‘There’s a multitude of areas related to what the VA does but the government doesn’t fund,’’ said Babb. ‘‘We hope to let the video provide a true picture of what needs to be done.’’ The Rev. Bill Harding, a pastor at Bethany Congregational Church in Quincy, is among the local residents featured in the trailer.

‘‘I’m really excited about the venture and what it will bring about,’’ said Harding, an Army Chaplin Major who has preached in Iraq and Kosovo.
