How to request Honor Guard support

Colorado Army National Guard family members requesting Military Funeral Honors must provide the Funeral Director handling the deceased veteran’s affairs with an official document verifying entitlement to such honors. The preferred documentation is the Department of Defense Form 214 (DD 214) or a Honorable Discharge Certificate. The Funeral Director, after receipt of one of these documents, will contact the Casualty Assistance Command at Fort Carson, located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Casualty Assistance Command will either provide the requested Honors Team or forward the request to the Colorado Army National Guard Honor Guard.
