Monroe County Joint Veterans Honor Guard maintain a large Insurance Policy because of the Rifles. We provide the uniforms for all our members. We maintain Flags & all the equipment for Posting the Colors, Parades & Ceremonies. We presently have two electronic bugles & one live Bugler. Our rifles are eighty years old and parts are hard to find & very expensive when we need to repair them. They must be cleaned after every Funeral because of the blanks.
Every year the cost of everything go up.
Since we formed we have NEVER charged for our services. We depend on Donations from the Funeral Homes, Families & the Community. We are not paid by any Government Agency. ALL our members Volunteer their time & pay for their own fuel.
