Rendering farewell salutes to our fallen Comrades
A rifle squad may consist of up to seven members plus the command sergeant. Using M1 rifles, the squad will execute three rifle volleys and the solemn sound of taps will play signaling a deserved farewell to the deceased veteran.
The Squad sometimes travel long distances to honor a deceased veteran. In an average month, the Squad receives about five requests for service. The Rifle Squad is volunteer and there is no charge for this service. This service is in part to fulfill our goal, "Perpetuate the memory and history of our dead and to assist their widows and orphans."
