MDNG Honor Guard/Colors Team

Our Organization
The rendering of military funeral honors is the ceremonial paying of respect and the final demonstration of the country’s gratitude to those who, in times of war and peace, have faithfully defended our Nation. The Maryland National Guard Honor Guard has provided over 15,000 Funeral Honors to Maryland Veterans since our inception in 1998.

Headquarters - Baltimore, Maryland
The Western Team - Baltimore, Maryland
The Northern Team - Havre De Grace, Maryland
The Southern Team - Greenbelt, Maryland

We ask that only Funeral Directors call to request honors. Please have a DD 214 or NGB 22 available for information needed to request the honors.

Requests for the Honor Guard at public ceremonies and special events are required 90 days prior to the event. Complete a DD Form 2536 (Request for Armed Forces Participation in Public Events).
