MILITARY FUNERAL HONORS PROGRAM – ARMY

This program is for Army Veterans. This is an Army National Guard program that pays AMVETS Veterans groups $50.00 for each funeral they participate in. The Army National Guard needs to be involved in the event by “touching the flag” folding, presenting, etc. The AMVETS posts can perform the shooting part of the event and the Army National Guard can fold and present the flag. As an example, the VFW funeral event put on by two VFW posts, each post would receive $50.00. A VFW and American Legion group can put on the event and each group would get $50.00. A AMVETS and American Legion group can put on the event and each group would get $50.00.

MILITARY APPRECIATION MONTH

May, marked officially as Military Appreciation Month, is a special month for both those in and out of the military.

Not only do we pause on Memorial Day to remember the sacrifice and service of those who gave all, but the month also holds several other military anniversaries and events, including Military Spouse Appreciation Day and Armed Forces day.

Join Military.com as we honor the service and sacrifice of members of the ArmyNavyAir ForceCoast GuardMarines and National Guard as well as the contribution of their spouses.

Congress designated May as National Military Appreciation Month in 1999 to ensure the nation was given the chance to publicly show their appreciation for troops past and present.
