Honoring Those Who Served & Our Community
Our Honor & Color Guard volunteers are highly motivated and maintain exceptionally high standards of appearance and conduct in their ceremonial duties. The American Legion Honor & Color Guards are available to the public for a variety of events including funerals, parades, flag ceremonies, community civic events, and more.
A military funeral is a burial rite given to all members who served in the Armed Forces of the United States of America. Upon the family's request, all eligible Veterans can be honored with a rifle squad, flag detail (American, Service Flag, and MIA/POW), a bugler to play Taps, and a Flag folding detail provided by the Branch of the military of the deceased as enacted by law from President Bush in 2003.
