Honor Guard

Base Seattle

The Seattle Area Honor Guard was established to honor those that have served before us and increase Coast Guard visibility in the community.


I am an Honor Guardsman.

I will proudly stand beside my shipmates  
Despite the discomforting elements.  
I will maintain poise on and off the parade field.  
I will exceed the standards and  
Accept nothing less than perfection.

I will honor all Coast Guard men and women  
Both living and dead.  
I will respect the Honor Guard mission  
And my seniors.  
I will devote my maximum effort to this sacred duty.

By wearing this rope
I have accepted a commitment to excellence  
As a way of life.
