MADISON (CBS 58) -- An Army Reservist whose beloved trumpet was stolen is making music again thanks to a Wisconsin business owner.

Staff Sergeant Matt Miller was in Milwaukee on Veterans Day when someone smashed the windows of his truck and stole the trumpet.

He had owned the trumpet for 20 years, bringing it with him throughout his tour in Iraq.

Getzen Company which makes instruments in Elkhorn stepped in to help.

They're giving Miller a new horn valued at $3,000.

"It looked beautiful. It was like, I don't even want to get fingerprints on it. It looks awesome," said Miller.

Miller reenlisted for another four years and plans to continue playing the trumpet with other musicians in the army.
