Comrades, in Death as in Life we Salute YOU!
A law governing military funeral honors went into effect on January 1, 2000. The law provides:
- A basic military funeral honors ceremony, including the folding and presentation of the flag and the playing of Taps for every eligible veteran
- A funeral honors detail to perform the ceremony, consisting of two or more uniformed members of the US Armed Forces, with at least one member from the service branch in which the veteran served.
