TEXAS VFW POST 76 HONOR GUARD
No Veteran of the United States of America Armed Forces will be denied their well-deserved MILITARY MEMORIAL HONORS upon their death.
Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Sam Houston Post 76 Honor Guard was formed and organized in 2007 with the full support of the Post’s Officers and General Membership to render and recognize any war veteran with their final Military Memorial Honors. Since our inception, over 1,900 full military honors and 800 color guard services have been rendered. We can proudly state that the “VFW Post 76 Honor Guard is the only recognized Honor Guard Memorial Team supported by the Department of Defense (DOD) within the San Antonio area.”
However, our services have extended up to 140 miles outside Bexar County or the city limits.
The VFW Post 76 Honor Guard exemplifies the self-sacrifice, dedication and devotion to our mission in performing a community service at the highest standard possible.
No veteran, regardless of gender and regardless of circumstances, is denied their last honor for their sacrifice in defending this great nation.
What We Do:
The VFW Post 76 Honor Guard conducts full military honors, including a three volley salute using M-1 rifles, playing of Taps with a live bugler and folding and presenting the American Flag to the next of kin. A Post Chaplain is included when needed. At end of the honors, three brass shells are presented to the veteran’s next of kin. We also display the deceased veteran’s service flag.
The VFW Post 76 Color Guard, upon request from military organizations, public schools or various profit/non-profit organizations, will post or display the American and State flags at events. When called upon, the Color Guard will participate in parades and National military holiday events throughout the San Antonio Area.
