In May, the Honor Guard assisted the Military Honors Teams at 9 Legion funerals and was present at 12 civic functions. 8 of the civic functions were for Memorial Day appearances. In calendar year 2023, the Honor Guard was asked to assist the Military Honors Teams at 46 Legion funerals and was present at 24 civic events. The effort the Honor Guard makes to honor our deceased veterans is greatly appreciated. I want to thank everyone involved for their continued support.
If you want military funeral honors conducted by your branch of service, you must produce a copy of your DD 214. Let your family know of your request and let them know where your paperwork is located. If you can’t find your DD214, you may request a copy by logging on to https://www.archives.gov/veterans/military-service-records and completing the form.
