The Honor Guard is the ceremonial head of the American Legion.  It is the regimental forefront of the heart of the American Veteran Movement.

The Honor Guard pays honorable tribute to Post 371 fallen veterans with the Last Watch Funeral Detail.  This "Final Salute" is a reverent and solemn service to bid farewell to our departed comrade. At the request of the family, the Guard will stand post during visitation/wake, and will provide a detail the day of the funeral (as resources permit) to fire a "Final Salute" at the cemetery. The Guard also leads the Legion, Auxiliary, Sons and Legion Riders in parades carrying the Colors, as well as posting and retrieving Colors, and be available for other community ceremonies as the resources of the Guard are available.

  Some examples include but are not limited to:

  • Memorial Day ceremonies.
  • 4th of July parade.
  • 9/11 ceremonies.
  • Veterans Day ceremonies.
  • Parades in surrounding communities who request the Honor Guard/Color Guard.
  • Speeches to local community groups regarding veteran issues.
  • Presentations on a variety of subjects requested by community groups such as the Boy and Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts and Brownies, local schools and churches

Anyone interested in requesting the Honor Guard/Color Guard for your event should email their request to Post371@outlook.com.  All requests should contain contact information so the Sgt-at-Arms can call to confirm Guard participation and get specifics of the event.
