Do you have what it takes to be an Honor Guard Soldier?

Each month, more than 850 deceased veterans receive honors. This is our way of saying "thank you" for their service to our nation.

Our teams perform the departed Soldier's final honors, play "Taps," and fold and present the flag to the next of kin. If possible, we also perform firing party duties. If YOU have what it takes and want the priviledge, you too may be able to be a member of the Honor Guard.

Beyond having the satisfaction of honoring those who came before us and the gratitude of family members, you'll have the opportunity to earn retirement points and drill pay.

If you are a Soldier who takes pride in the military and your appearance, are willing to learn how to perform these ceremonies, have an Army Service Uniform, and can be available on weekends and some weekdays, Contact your local Honor Guard Detachment.
