The Coast Guard is not allowed to spend any funds conducting Burial at Sea details, committal ceremonies will be carryout by units when their operational schedule allows. Because of these constrains we cannot promise or guarantee specific dates or level of participation in the service by family members.

By law, the Coast Guard will provide a two (2) person team to play taps and present the flag to the next of kin. If the family wishes a full Honor Guard (15 members) they must contact a local veterans group to help.

Sector Jacksonville's Color/Honor Guard is a part-time unit.  For mission planning purposes, at a minimum we need at least one business day (Monday - Friday) of advance notice to coordinate the MFH.

Documents needed: DD-214 or other discharge paperwork and copy of Death Certificate
