**Please note that through the tough times we currently face, the Newport Harbor
American Legion Honor Guard continues to provide memorial and
funeral services for our fallen Veterans**
Post 291 Honor Guard was originally organized to assist our active duty military in rendering Military Honors at funerals and memorial services for our fallen veterans. Our team has since grown to fulfill two main purposes.
**To provide military funeral ceremonies for veterans who have
served honorably in the United States Military.
**To provide support services for community events with numerous
variations of Color Guard teams.
These services are provided with no compensation to the members of the team, but purely as a patriotic duty to honor our country, active duty service members, and our veterans (past and present).
- Our team represents a very diverse background of military service.
- It is composed of all five branches of the military, and ranges in era of service; from the Korean war to recent conflicts in the Middle East.
Although our active military service is behind us now and our mission may be different… Our focus on patriotism remains the same. We serve to honor our brothers and sisters in their final hour, and hold our National Colors high to foster a sense of patriotism at public events.
The Honor Guard is looking for new members to join the team.
We are continuously looking for new members to join our team. We do not require past experience and we welcome Veterans from all branches of the Armed Forces. We will provide the uniforms and the training, if you can provide the heart and dedication to volunteer your time. If you are a Veteran and a member of the Newport Harbor American Legion, you’ve met the most basic requirements
