Honor Guard

The VFW Post 6731 Honor Guard was formed in 2007 and began operations in 2008. It is commanded by Captain of the Guard Rick Arbogast. In 2009 the Honor Guard was chosen to serve as the Color Guard for the State Department of the Veterans of Foreign Wars of the State of Mississippi.


The primary purpose of the Honor Guard is to render honors to the departed comrades of our Military Services. In this regard we have served as the Honor Guard at dozens of funerals at the Biloxi National Cemetery. The unit provides a Captain of the Guard, who presents the folded flag to the next of kin, our Chaplain, a bugler to play taps over the fallen, and a Sergeant of the Guard with a seven man firing squad to render honors by firing three volleys for the departed.


The Honor Guard is also called to special events to post flags and render honors on various occasions at public functions.


There are no costs for our services; this is a volunteer unit that feels honored to be of comfort to the living in remembering the fallen.


The Guard is available on an as needed basis, with as much prior notification of the event as can be given to insure that our members can prepare.


To contact the Honor Guard with a request or simply to ask questions you can contact the Post at (228) 392-1152, Captain of the Guard, Rick Arbogast at (228) 326-6745.
