The American Legion’s Operation Honor Guard

SunsetIn the states of Illinois and Indiana, the American Legion and Sunset Funeral Homes have teamed up to ensure veterans always receive final honors.

From the website: Every day the Honor Guard, a group of veterans, gather to give a fallen solider a dignified, respectful farewell by performing military rites at a comrade’s funeral.  They serve in any weather conditions, any time of day, and without
compensation.  To honor and support these individuals, Sunset Funeral Homes and the Darby Family are volunteering their time on behalf of the area’s American Legion Posts by hosting Operation Honor Guard; a fundraising campaign to purchase rifles, ammunition, and uniforms.

If you can, please help support this worthy cause.
