LOUDON COUNTY VETERANS HONOR GUARD
The Honor Guard is available for services primarily in Loudon County, but will go outside of the county if needed and when requested will provide services at the Veterans Cemetery in Knoxville.
The Loudon County Veterans Honor Guard is always looking for new personnel to assist in the ceremonies that they perform within Loudon County. These include Military Funeral Honors for deceased Veterans at NO cost to the families. LCVHG also participates in local parades, flag raising events at local businesses and churches. They support local holiday celebrations with a full flag color guard and service branch flags as requested.
Membership in LCVHG requires that the Veteran has been discharged with other than a Dis-honorable status from any of the US Armed Forces. We also include Active duty and National Guard personnel in the Honor Guard.
Uniforms and camaraderie will be furnished at no cost to Volunteers.
If you have any questions or interest in joining the LCVHG please call Mike Schack 423-519-0743 for more complete details.
