MALMSTROM AIR FORCE BASE, Mont. --
Rendering a final salute to a fallen service member and handing a folded flag to their next of kin is not something that’s easy to do or taken lightly. That’s why service in the Honor Guard is reserved for those who want to exemplify Air Force tradition, honor and core values.
The 341st Missile Wing Base Honor Guard performs ceremonial functions during funerals, retirement ceremonies, changes of command and other base and community events. They perform pall bearing, flag folding, bugling, three-volley rifle fire, presenting or posting the colors, POW/MIA ceremonies and more.
