Here is your chance to thank and show your appreciation of the Honor/Color Guard
On Friday, October 21 , the Honor Guard/Color Guard will be recognized at the Poinsettia Pavilion, at 10am.
Many of us have had a chance to be a part of a military burial conducted by the Honor Guard, or have seen the presentation of colors by the Color Guard at various military ceremonies and events, but few have had the chance to thank these great men and women for what they do. Rain or shine, in cold weather or high heat, these men and women are dressed in uniform ready to pay their last respects and deliver a memorable military burial for those who have sacrificed for our country.
The Honor Guard are responsible for providing a military burial consisting of the folding of the flag, a presentation of the flag, a gun salute and the playing of “Taps,” while the Color Guard sets the tone of a military ceremonial event.
“It is time to give back and say thank you to these great men and women who serve our community with the Honor Guard/Color Guard,” said Dinah Davis, Ventura, Ojai and Camarillo Hospice Business Manager of Livingston VNA, who makes it a priority to recognize the Veterans and Military Families who have fought for our freedom.
