Memorial Day: Important Information About Military Funeral Honors [AUDIO]
We thought today, with this being Memorial Day weekend, it would be the perfect time to invite on the Moose Morning Show, Frank Norwood, the Maine Military Funeral Honors Coordinator with the The Maine Military Funeral Honors Program.
Military Funeral Honors is now an entitlement for all honorably discharged Veterans. The rendering of Military Funeral Honors for United States Armed Forces Veterans is a tribute that our Veterans and their families justly deserve and in fact, are now entitled to. It is a way to show our Nation’s deep gratitude to those who, in times of war and peace, have faithfully defended our country.
Approximately 30 highly skilled and carefully selected soldiers perform the services for the Veterans of Maine. The standard at which these Soldiers perform is the exact same standard expect of military personnel performing funerals at Arlington National Cemetery.
I know when my dad, a veteran, passed away, we had a very easy time setting up his service and program with Maine Military Funeral Honors Program. I have nothing but praise for the wonderful job they did honoring my dad at his funeral.
