Bella Vista Honor Guard
The Bella Vista Honor Guard is looking for volunteers due to the increase in requests for appearances at special events. The Honor Guard provides military honors at a funeral occurring within northwest Arkansas. A veteran's sendoff demonstrates a nation's gratitude for the veteran's valor and service. Local funeral home directors can be called to initiate a request for military funeral honors for a deceased veteran. Proof of military service will be required in the form of a DD-214 or Statement of Service. Additional volunteers means the Honor Guard will be able to honor more requests. For more information, go to vetwallofhonor.org.
