We will assemble and brief at 9:00 am ahead of the family’s arrival for viewing. We will stand a flag line during visitation and stand down during the 11:00 am service. After the service, we will render honors as the hero is transferred to the hearse and then form into rolling honor guard for approximately 16 miles to Sweet Home Baptist Church cemetery where we will again stand a flag line as a USMC Honor Guard performs taps and folds & presents the flag.
