Military life and ceremonies are steeped in tradition and symbolism, and funerals are no exception. Although one of the more somber traditions for military members, understanding the symbolism behind different aspects of a funeral with military honors highlight the amount of pure respect the community has for their fallen members.
The Appleton Post 38 Honor Guard is frequently called upon to preform military honors for our local veterans who have passed away. We present our colors, perform riffle squad, bugle if not provided by the active duty military present and present brass to the our honored fallen veterans loved ones on behalf of the American Legion family.
Take this opportunity now to familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of a military funeral.
If you are a Legion member, Son of the American Legion or Auxiliary member and are interested in joining our Honor Guard, please reach out to our Chairman Rick Eisenach.
