National Guard holds funeral honors training in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS – The Louisiana National Guard Military Funeral Honors Program hosted 12 Guardsmen from Arkansas, Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, Indiana, Oklahoma and New York for an Army National Guard Level II Funeral Honors Instructor Certification Course at Jackson Barracks in New Orleans, Feb. 4-16.

“We teach these Soldiers customs and courtesies that go beyond military funeral honors,” said Bryan Hines, an ARNG Funeral Honors national trainer. “We have to fit what the Old Guard would train in four weeks into a two-week time period.”
