POST 22 HONOR GUARD

Purpose of the Guyer-Carignan Post 22 Honor Guard


*  To provide Military Rites for Deceased Honorably Discharged Veterans.

*  To participate in a limited number of parades.

*  To present programs on Americanism, Flag and other Patriotic ceremonies to Grade, High Schools, Scouts and others as requested.

*  To participate in Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Flag Day, 9/11 and others.


Upon the family's request, Public Law 106-65 requires that every eligible Veteran receive a military funeral honors ceremony, to include folding and presenting the United States burial flag and the playing of taps. 

In our case there is 3 rifle volleys fired, taps and the folding and presenting of the flag.

The 3 volleys signifying that the dead are being cared for, going back to the tradition during the Civil War where both sides would fire 3 shots and a cease fire would be called so that both sides could care for their deceased.
