The Fire Service is based on tradition, and the Honor Guard roots, date back to early English times, as knights with special weapons and shields tended to the wounded on the battle field. The Honor Guard today has established several traditions within the group. When we become members we represent honor, pride, tradition, courage, discipline, and dedication for those that have gone before us. We also have 8 obligations to live by; to live in truth, to be sincere, to love justice, to endure persecution, to have faith, to give proof of humility, to be merciful and to repent from sins. We will always do "whatever it takes" to uphold the tradition and integrity of this Honor Guard. Faces and names change, but the Honor Guard will always remain the same!
"Greater love hath no man than this, than a man lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13)
I invite everyone who visits our site to enjoy and to absorb all of the useful information.
