Since 1979, the dedicated volunteers of the
Memorial
Rifle Squad at Fort Snelling National Cemetery have
provided our departed US Veterans with Military Honors.
Read more about MRS Honors statistics. 

 

Our US Veterans have earned our Nations respect
and deserve a Final Salute with a Honor Guard
Presentation.  A Rifle Volley, Taps, and
presentation of a folded flag to a family
survivor, become part of their legacy.
