The all volunteer 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 Minneapolis Fort Snelling National Cemetery.

The Memorial Rifle Squad was founded in 1979 to ensure our military veterans are buried with the honors they deserve.  Ceremonies include three rifle volleys, the solemn sound of taps, the folding and presentation of the American flag to a surviving family member.
