Post 626 is proud to have an Honor Guard to represent our Post at public ceremonies, parades and other formal events where we represent the American Legion in the public’s eye.  However, our most important function is to render Full Military Honors at the funerals of veterans.  Not all American Legion Posts have this privilege.  The Honor Guard must first be “certified” by a representative of the MO Adjutant General’s Office after demonstrating that they can perform the “Honors” in accordance with the Arlington National Cemetery Standard.  The only asset we are currently in need of is YOU!  We would be pleased to have you join us.  If you are interested in finding out more about the Honor Guard, please feel free to contact me at (816) 536-2713.
