KAFB Honor Guard

  • By
The mission of the Team Kirtland Honor Guard is to provide dignified funeral honors upon request to all honorably discharged veterans within our Area of responsibility.

To request services call 505-846-1804 during regular business hours, or you may also contact the Honor Guard manager by cell phone at 505-238-6648. All funeral requests require the deceased member's DD 214.

The Air Force Funeral Honors Program provides three levels of Military honors: Active Duty, Retired, and Veteran. The vast majority of requests are for retired and Veteran Honors.

Although the Honor Guard' s primary mission is to provide funeral honors, it also provides a variety of performances supporting base and community functions. Most commonly the Honor Guard is called upon to proudly carry the U.S. flag as a color guard during opening ceremonies for military and civic events.

Our support of any scheduled non-funeral event may be cancelled if we receive a conflicting funeral request. Funeral requests can come with as little as 24 to 48 hours notice, so have an alternate plan in case the team which is scheduled to support your event is reassigned to provide funeral honors.

For more information, call 505-846-1804.
