                      American Veterans Post 90 DeKalb IL supports an "Honor Guard" as a unit that provides funeral and/or graveside ceremonies in conjunction with local funeral homes  at the request of the family members. This unit may perform all aspects of the ceremony if there are no active military personnel available, or at the funeral director's request after consultation with the family. The ceremony would consist of flag folding & presentation, playing of taps, and a rifle salute.

In most cases there will be active duty military available for the flag folding ceremony and the playing of taps. They provide the ceremony commander or leader. The post provides a Rifle Squad Commander and five to eight riflemen. The Post also provides flag bearers for the American, POW/MIA, Military Branch, and AMVETS colors

The Honor Guard must present a professional and dignified presence at these ceremonies. Anything less dishonors the family, and the veteran whom we are honoring. The families are always appreciative of our presence during these services.

Our Honor Guard has been Honoring our military brothers for many years. Since 2011 they have attended over 140 services.

Many of our Honor Guard member also provide  "Color Guard" services presenting the colors at various public events such as parades, school activities, veteran functions, and patriotic programs. The color guard may be as simple as carrying the American, POW/MIA, and AMVET flags. Or it may consist of a full color guard unit that adds all of the military branch flags. A rifle escort is always included for the American flag.
