The Memorial Rifle Squad honors our US Military Veterans for their sacrifice in defending our nation providing them with military honors as we lay them to rest at the Fort Snelling National Cemetery of Minneapolis.  Their sacrifice to defend our nation and its citizens deserves many thanks, our continued respect and ongoing support.

The all volunteer Memorial Rifle Squad was founded in 1979 to ensure our military veterans are buried with the honors they deserve.  The duty of presenting the final salute is mission of more than 130 US Military Veteran volunteers.  The Rifle Squad volunteers consist of five groups performing Monday thru Friday honors ceremonies which includes three rifle volleys, the solemn sound of taps, the folding and presentation of the American flag to a surviving family member.
