The joint Bessemer VFW Post 3673 and American Legion Post 5 honor guard is comprised of a dedicated group of fellow veterans who volunteer their time to show our colors at various events during veteran holidays, schools, and dedications.

Their most honored function, however, is performing Military Ritual Services in honor of our departed veterans. This is done during the funeral service or at the cemetery and includes a rifle salute, taps, and presentation of our Nation's flag to the veteran's family.

If you are interested in becoming a member of our honor guard or would like to request our services, please contact our honor guard commander, Irv Mattson, at 906-663-0599. This can also be arranged through an area funeral home.
