Honor Guard

The High Frontier Honor Guard fulfills a key role in the quality of life of active duty, retiree, and veteran families by providing final tribute for deceased military members on behalf of the president of the United States and the United States Air Force.

Also, as a courtesy to unit commanders, the teams provide a proud and professional representation of the service by presenting colors, performing retirement functions or a number of other details.
