The Purpose of the Honor Guard is to Serve all Honor Guard functions of the home organization and the Community. The Honor Guard will offer service to all Veterans and Veteran functions when possible. The Honor Guard will hold the highest level of respect for all that wore the uniform of this Country.
VFW honor guards are made up mainly of honorably discharged veterans. The most common service they provide is at funerals of fellow veterans, where they fold and present an American flag to next of kin, perform a gun salute and play Taps.
