Presentation of the Flag of the United States
"On behalf of the President of the United States and the United States (Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps or Navy,) and a grateful Nation, please accept this flag as a symbol of our appreciation for your loved one's honorable and faithful service"
The purpose of the American Legion Honor Guard is to honor the service and sacrifice of honorably discharged of veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.
The dedicated members of the Post 287 Honor Guard render military honors at an average of 40 funerals per year for veterans in northwest Missouri.
Our Post considers it an honor and a privilege to serve the families of deceased veterans, therefore, our team members aspire and adhere to the highest standards of American Legion Honor Guard protocols and professionalism.
We currently have 22 volunteer Post 287 members serving on our Funeral Honors Team which is comprised of Legionnaires, American Legion Riders, and Sons of The American Legion members.
Regardless of the weather conditions, the American Legion Post 287 Honor Guard will be there when called upon to serve.
