Do you have what it takes to be an Honor Guard?
Each month, more than 300 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 privilege, you too may be able to be a member of the Honor Guard.
If you are a Soldier who takes pride in the military and your appearance; are willing to learn how to perform these ceremonies; have a Class A uniform (Dress Blue uniforms are provided for qualified Soldiers); and can be available on weekends and some weekdays, call the Honor Guard Coordinator, Military Forces Honor Guard Program, at 717-861-8694 or email NGPAHonorGuard@ng.army.mil.
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. (Retirees -- National Guard or Active Duty -- are also eligible to be team members.)
