From Numbers 8-10
They are to blast the trumpets so the LORD remembers them in battle. An act of dependence and faith. They are also to blast the trumpets during times of gladness during feasts, the beginnings of months and various offerings. Imagine trumpets sounding in the distance daily if you lived with them or in Jerusalem much later. There goes another sacrifice to the LORD. A continued reminder of the LORD for all the people throughout their generations.

Passage and Comments
 And you shall bring the Levites before the tent of meeting and assemble the whole congregation of the people of Israel.  When you bring the Levites before the LORD, the people of Israel shall lay their hands on the Levites,  and Aaron shall offer the Levites before the LORD as a wave offering from the people of Israel, that they may do the service of the LORD.  Then the Levites shall lay their hands on the heads of the bulls, and you shall offer the one for a sin offering and the other for a burnt offering to the LORD to make atonement for the Levites.  And you shall set the Levites before Aaron and his sons, and shall offer them as a wave offering to the LORD. (Nu 8:9-13)
 And the sons of Aaron, the priests, shall blow the trumpets. The trumpets shall be to you for a perpetual statute throughout your generations.  And when you go to war in your land against the adversary who oppresses you, then you shall sound an alarm with the trumpets, that you may be remembered before the LORD your God, and you shall be saved from your enemies.  On the day of your gladness also, and at your appointed feasts and at the beginnings of your months, you shall blow the trumpets over your burnt offerings and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings. They shall be a reminder of you before your God: I am the LORD your God.” (Nu 10:8-10)
