#HonorGuardsofAmerica consists of former and retired members of the ceremonial units of the US military, military veterans, first responder agencies (law enforcement, firefighters, and emergency medical service), and civilians wanting to render respect and honor!
The mission of Honor Guards of America is to:
* Educate the general public about honor guards.
* Preserve the history and traditions relating to honor guards.
* Recognize all honor guards nationwide each year during Honor Guards Day
* Provide assistance to honor guards nationwide with or without honor guard units.
Honor Guards of America is recognizing all honor guards nationwide on July 1st 2018 for Honor Guards Day. We are asking all Governors, mayors and council members to recognize their local honor guards.
Honor Guards of America is proud to be recognizing all honor guards for the 2nd year on July 1st 2018 for Honor Guards Day in Orlando, Florida (Mark your calendars now). We’re starting on June 30th with our 1st Annual Honor Guards Ball at the Florida Hotel 1500 Sand Lake Rd, Orlando, FL 32809. All proceeds will benefit the new Museum of Honor Guards, Bagpipes & Drums and memorial statues in front representing each agency (Military, Law Enforcement, Fire Services, EMS, Corrections, and one to represent other agencies). Our 2nd Annual Honor Guards Day Parade event will be held at the Florida Mall (Simon Property Group) 8001 South Orange Blossom Trail, Orlando, FL 32809.
Honor Guards of America along with honor guards across the United States serve with honor, dignity and loyalty; and they demonstrate high regard for the traditions of the United States Military, public safety organizations, other agencies and honor the veterans who serve our country; and the Honor Guard is comprised of courageous men and women who have selflessly served in our military, law enforcement, fire service, public safety, emergency medical service, corrections, other agencies; and all those who wear the uniform of the honor guard understand the sacrifice and are an important part of the community; and the Honor Guard serves each community through participation in services for the fallen, presenting the colors with honor and involvement in community memorials; and the Honor Guard acts as the face of the organization they represent during solemn times of mourning and remembrance, and provide solace to families and communities during times of grief; and this is an opportunity to recognize their services and sacrifice, and show appreciation of Honor Guards who support our communities as we pay tribute and remember those who have selflessly served our cities, counties, state and nation; with honor, dignity and respect.
