LOUDON COUNTY VETERANS HONOR GUARD
The Honor Guard is available for services primarily in Loudon County, but will go outside of the county if needed and when requested will provide services at the Veterans Cemetery in Knoxville.
The Loudon County Veterans Honor Guard is recruiting personnel to assist in honoring those Military Veterans who have passed on. We provide Military Funeral Honors at no cost to the Veteran's families. Membership in the American Legion or the Veterans of Foreign Wars is not a requirement, but volunteers must have served honorably in any of the US Armed Forces. If you can hold a Flag, fire a M1 Rifle or read a prayer, the Honor Guard needs you. Uniforms and camaraderie will be furnished at no cost to volunteers. If you are interested call Roy Salton at 458-9171 or Jim Karg at 458-8695.
The Honor Guard has a total 15 of those coming from Post 256. Current members from Post 256:
Earle Boyer, Bob Brown, Rich Comiso, Rich Gruber, Doug Kahr, Ron Lockhart, Jim Miller, Joel Newman, Tom Pace, Bob Provart, Nate Rinehart, Paul Rudinsky, Warren Sanders, Tom Spahn, Herb West
