November is set aside to honor our veterans. Some veterans or their relatives may not know that veterans deserve special honors when they die.
The Payson Honor Guard, composed of veterans from all services, is available, upon request, to be part of the graveside or memorial ceremonies for deceased veterans.
The honor guard was formed more than two years ago, but just recently has been certified by Military Personnel Services to perform the ceremonies due the deceased.
For assistance in arranging for the honor guard, contact the Messinger Payson Funeral Home, (928) 474-2800, American Legion, (928) 474-6969 or other veterans' organizations.
