The Honor Guard requests that

from TISCOM (Alexandria, VA). If

discretion of the Honor Guard Company Commander.
For a performance or function other than a funeral, this request must be received no later than 05 days business prior to the event date.
The Honor Guard exists to support Military District of Washington (MDW) functions, such as Presidential events, to directly support the Commandant of the Coast Guard, and to support all Coast Guard burials at Arlington National Cemetery (ANC). Any other event requests may be accepted only when it does not conflict with MDW, Commandant, or ANC obligations. Because some MDW tasking occurs with very little notice, other events with less priority may be cancelled with very little notice. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility.
FUNERAL REQUEST NOTES:
No request form is needed for Ceremonial Honor Guard (
To request funeral support for a Coast Guard veteran at a location other than ANC, or the Washington, DC area, please contact your local Coast Guard Military Funeral Honors Regional Coordinator (MFH-RC).
