Good Afternoon Honorable Peter I. Ohtaki,

Honor Guards of America <https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/honorguardsofamerica?source=feed_text&story_id=335575830232830> consists of former and retired members of the ceremonial units of the US military, military veterans, homeland security, first responder agencies (law enforcement, firefighters, and emergency medical service), and civilians wanting to render respect and honor.

The mission of Honor Guards of America is to:
Educate the general public about honor guards.
Preserve the history and traditions relating to honor guards.
Recognize all honor guards nationwide each year during Honor Guards Day
Provide assistance to honor guards nationwide with or without honor guard units.

Honor Guards of America is recognizing all honor guards nationwide on July 1st 2018 for Honor Guards Day. We are asking all Governors, mayors and council members to join the nation in observing these courageous men and women in your state or local city/county.

Why we're recognizing all honor guards for Honor Guards Day?

Honor Guards of America along with honor guards across the United States serve with honor, dignity and loyalty; and they demonstrate high regard for the traditions of the United States Military, public safety organizations, other agencies and honor the veterans who serve our country; and the Honor Guard is comprised of courageous men and women who have selflessly served in our military, law enforcement, fire service, public safety, emergency medical service, corrections, other agencies; and all those who wear the uniform of the honor guard understand the sacrifice and are an important part of the community; and the Honor Guard serves each community through participation in services for the fallen, presenting the colors with honor and involvement in community memorials; and the Honor Guard acts as the face of the organization they represent during solemn times of mourning and remembrance, and provide solace to families and communities during times of grief; and this is an opportunity to recognize their services and sacrifice, and show appreciation of Honor Guards who support our communities as we pay tribute and remember those who have selflessly served our cities, counties, state and nation; with honor, dignity and respect.
Please feel free to join us in recognizing these men and women nationwide in Florida or in your State on Honor Guards Day July 1st.

Please support our fundraising efforts for the new Museum of Honor Guards, Bagpipes & Drums and let us know if you’re interested in hosting our event next year
