Assembly (bugle call)

Assembly is a bugle call used to call in a group of soldiers or scouts. It is also sometimes referred to as "Fall in".

A commonly known earthy mnemonic lyric associated with the call goes: "There's a soldier in the grass, with a bullet up his ass, take it out, take it out, like a good Girl Scout!"
