In the month of November, the Honor Guard rendered “Honors” at 10 Legion funerals and was
asked to assist at 4 VFW funerals. We also appeared in the Lincoln Veterans Day Parade,
conducted a dignified Flag retirement, and appeared at 7 Veterans Day ceremonies. In
calendar year 2021, the Honor Guard has rendered “Honors” at 152 combined funerals and
appeared at 31 civic functions.
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.
