Meetings: 4th Wednesday of the Month @ 7:00 PM
WHO WE ARE
Anyone interested in requesting the Honor Guard/Color Guard for your event should email their request. All requests should contain contact information so the Sgt-at-Arms can call to confirm Guard participation and get specifics of the event.
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.
