Last Salute Military Funeral Honor Guard is an ALL volunteer multi-branch fully self-funded 501(C)3 W-30 Veterans Service Organization. Last Salute conducts over 125 ceremonies a year for all four branches of the military. Your donation is fully tax-deductible.
The services provided by our all-volunteer detail are completely FREE. Some of these services are quite costly.
Your contribution is what makes our ability to complete our mission possible. Last Salute wants to provide the highest quality, most professional and elaborate military funeral honors as possible. Those who served deserve no less.
The cost of fuel and maintenance on military vehicles is substantial. Other costs incurred include but are not limited to
Uniform procurement and maintenance (we must look as sharp as possible).
Cannon maintenance, fuses, and powder (about $45 each time we fire).
Rifle maintenance, we use WW2 era M1 Garand rifles which require replacement parts and maintenance.
Travel expenses, primarily fuel (as related to meeting with families, funeral directors or other specific service arrangement requirements).
The gun carriage Humvee and Caisson Humvee are by far our most costly expense. Prior to each funeral, we clean and service the Humvees as well as do paint touch-ups or other repairs as needed. The tactical black “Gun Carriage” Humvees dash is signed by 10 Medal of Honor recipients and the fully up-armored combat camouflage Caisson Humvee is signed by 6 Medal of Honor recipients.
We provide for the families for FREE photos at each service to memorialize their Hero for generations to come to see more about what we do please visit our website and we hope that the memorial pages speak volumes as to the Honor and Dedication that goes into our mission and we hope that you will help us in continuing. www.LastSalute.us
Thank you for your support. We are eternally grateful.

LAST SALUTE MILITARY FUNERAL HONOR GUARD
Coporal Knutson is a dedicated Veteran Marine who spends her time trying to spread the word about what her and the other volunteer veterans feel passionately about, and that is providing the most elaborate, dignified, and honorable military funeral service that the team can provide for FREE.
Honored to support Last Salute!
all they gave to us this is a small way of honoring them
The work you do along with your fantastic “army” of volunteers and the respect you give our fellow vets and their families is a wonderful thing. Thank you, Joe & Marsha Brown
