Memorial Honor Guard Corps Newsletter
Join the Honor Guard
Since 2004, the Albert G. Horton, Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery has honored more than
16,000 veterans and their family members. Every year approximately 600 more veterans are
laid in their final resting place. Now, with the creation of the new Honor Guard Corps,
it will be possible to offer full honors with a rifle volley for all those who ask. Our
goal is to honor, remember, and recognize all those who have served.
If you are interested in joining the Honor Guard, please fill out an
application of interest. All volunteers will receive training from the US Army and are
required to register with the Virginia Veterans Services at Hampton VAMC as well as
complete a background check.
Volunteer Honor Guard Corps members will serve throughout the year
between the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. There may be one to three services a day. In
between services, for remote workers, workspace and internet access will be provided.
Please share our Honor Guard Corp materials to potential sponsors,
donors, and volunteers. See information available that you can personalize for your use
on the MITS-GIVES, Inc. website.
