Military Funeral Honors

Wednesday, June 06, 2018 12:18 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

The rendering of Military Funeral Honors for an eligible veteran, free of charge, is mandated by law. 

A recent incident with a Colorado funeral director has had a negative affect on the Colorado Army National Guard Military Funeral Honors Program, Fort Logan National Cemetery and local funeral homes in the Denver (surrounding areas). 

Failure to follow guidelines resulted in the multiple absences of military presence for veteran services. These expectations for Veteran Services within the State of Colorado have been ignored and dismissed most negligently by the funeral director involved with this incident.

To request military honors, please email: ng.co.coarng.list.mfh@mail.mil
