In an effort to provide
our retired brothers (at the time of their demise) with a
dignified, and respectable presence, the Retired Association has
decided to organize a "Honor Guard".
This will not be a precision -
spit and polish - drill team type concept, but simply a list of
retired brother firefighters who may have known and worked with
the departed, or at least served during the same time frame.
Participation by this Honor Guard
will be ONLY By request of the family, and only to the extent
that the family desires.
To include but not limited to
pallbearers, (active or honorary) - liaison between the family
and visiting fire fighters, or simply lending a fire service
The "uniform of the day" for this
honor guard shall from this day forward be known as the "Lockrow
Suit" which will consist of a navy blue blazer, white shirt,
gray slacks, and black shoes (properly polished) and official
Honor Guard tie issued by the Association.
For those who wish to
participate, and do not own a "Lockrow Suit" we have made
arrangements with "Men's Warehouse" for a very good discount on
the blazer and slacks.
The more members who participate
in this honor guard will provide for a large cadre to draw from
meaning less travel and less frequent events.
Please give this Honor Guard
serious consideration, and join us in providing our departed
members with class, dignity, and proper respect.
