Honor Guard mission, perform a Military Funeral service that will include a rifle volley, taps and the presentation of a folded flag to the surviving loved one of the veteran. In addition, these volunteers perform a public service when asked to do so, to include posting and retrieval of the National colors at certain ceremonies, raising of the colors at baseball games, display the colors in parades, perform flag education services for school and scout groups, honor local returning war veterans and to provide that service which may require a Military Honor Guard.
The men and women of the Honor Guard, past and present, have performed their duties with outstanding loyalty, in the dead of winter or the scorching heat of summer, asking of the veteran neither creed nor color. Ask a dozen Guardsmen why they do what they do and you are likely to get a dozen different answers.
If you would like the Honor Guard to perform at a function, please notify the Post as soon as possible in advance, they cannot function on a 'call today perform tomorrow' basis.
