The Sheppard Honor Guard performs
various ceremonies in a 23-county area of responsibility in North Texas and southern Oklahoma area.
Honor Guard members stand tall; they are sharp, crisp, motionless by choice,
volunteering to serve and represent every member, past and present, of the
United States Air Force. The Honor Guard is responsible for many ceremonies:
Standard Honors Funeral: This is a
service that is provided to a member who retired from the Air Force with at
least 20 years of service. It consists of Pallbearers, flag fold, firing party,
and the playing of taps. Funeral homes will need to fax us a copy of the DD 214
and a request form. We
request at least 24 hour notice before so we may schedule.
Veteran Honors Funeral: This is a
service that is provided to a member who separated from the Air Force under
honorable conditions. It consists of a flag fold and the playing of taps.
Funeral homes will need to fax a copy of the DD 214 and a request form. We request at least 24 hour
notice before so we may schedule.
Other Ceremonies: The Honor
Guard also provides many other details. They include: parades, outdoor colors
presents, retirements, memorial ceremonies, POW/MIA, and others. We request 2
weeks in advance to schedule ceremonies that fall into the “other” category.
Please keep in mind that funeral honors is our primary mission and has priority
over all other ceremonies.
