Honor Guard is well versed in military customs and courtesies and continuing
training is provided to each color guard or honor guard member .
The honor guards of the Red Rose Veterans Honor Guard proudly wear full
dress military uniforms when performing their duties, whether as color
guards or part of a military funeral detail, they represent with pride
their individual branch of service. The Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines,
Coast Guard and Merchant Marine can point with pride to this group of men
and women volunteers. If you have an event that needs to render the
proper honors while presenting the colors of the United States, or if you
