The Honor Guard is a four-person formation of highly-polished Air Force personnel in full service dress uniform. They act as a color guard, posting and retiring the flag and rendering to it the proper customs and courtesies. This time-honored traditional detail adds dignity and solemnity to any military-related activity while showing respect to our nation and those who have served it. To request a Connecticut National Guard Honor Guard, event organizers should submit a completed General Support Request Form DD2536.

Thank you for your interest in military support for your event. We take pride in supporting our local communities and hope to be able to promote the positive attributes of military service at your event.
