To provide dignified, honorable, and worthy memorial services for all former military service members. Military discharges must have been under honorable conditions.
Note: Membership in the American Legion is not required re: military funeral honors.
Post #10’s Honor Guard provides such services for Greater Boonsboro/Hagerstown/Frederick, MD cemeteries, churches, funeral homes, and public or private facilities.
The “Final Salute” consists of a military rifle volley, playing of “TAPS”, flag folding, and presentation to next of kin.
Honor Guard services are free. However, we accept donations which help us carry out our important mission to provide final honors to those who served our beloved country.
Requests for such honors should be made as soon as possible and directed to the appropriate Funeral Director who will provide the appropriate U.S. Flag. Funeral Directors also coordinate Post #10 Honor Guard scheduling.
Note: Funeral Directors require a copy of the deceased’s Military DD-214.
The Honor Guard also participates in a myriad of annual events to include the Boonsboro Memorial Parade, Patriot’s Day [9-11] Parade, Sharpsburg Veteran’s Day ceremony, Flag Day, and Presentation of Colors at civic events.
