The Joint Service Honors Command is composed of military retires and former members of every service of the Armed Forces. The Joint Service Honors Command members are disciplined, trained, loyal uniformed volunteers that serve and stand ready to serve our area.
The primary mission requires highly trained individuals in Color and Honor Guard ceremonies, as well as those fulfilling the duties of pallbearers, salute riflemen and a bugler. The flag-folding rite requires learned skill in the correct manner to accomplish this function and then, there is the requirement to present the folded flag to the next of kin in the prescribed manner.
Personnel serving in this capacity must present a professional military bearing in both appearance as well as knowledge of tradition. Unlike any other formal ceremony, we have only one chance to do it right. There is no alternative. We do not take care of deceased personnel; we care for survivors. The highly charged emotional aspect of this service requires absolute perfection.
