Marion County Memorial Honor Guard

Honor Guard

Since 2001, we have performed over 5,000 Military Honor Ceremonies at Funerals for our Veterans.


As a war veterans' organization we proudly provide ceremonial funeral honors and assistance to all military veterans and their families during their time of need, and provide any and all patriotic services when requested.

The Marion County Memorial Honor Guard promotes Americanism, dignity, and respect for our country’s warriors by upholding the utmost professionalism and integrity through its conduct and image at all times.

With the responsibility bestowed upon us, we will never forget that it is the Veteran who commands the dignity we protect.

The Marion County Memorial Honor Guard was formed shortly after 9/11. It officially started as a Florida Non-Profit Corporation on September 23, 2002. The IRS approved it in 2003 as a 501(c)(19) war veterans' organization which provides tax-exempt status for the Memorial Honor Guard and allows all donations and contributions to be deductible under IRC 170(c)(3).

We are currently averaging almost 4 memorial services a week. We have never charged a penny for our Memorial Honor Guard Services. Our Board of Directors, Officers and all of the members of our Memorial Honor Guard are 100% volunteers who give freely of their time, support and ceremony efforts.

We have no employees. We provide our free services to central Florida and have traveled as far as 800 miles to provide veteran memorial services at Arlington Memorial Cemetery in Arlington, VA.

Donations and Honorariums are welcome, tax deductable and are our only source of funds. Please send your donations to Memorial Honor Guard, 2306 SW 20th CT, Ocala, FL 34471 or use the donation button below.

100% of your donation will go to our mission to provide our patriotic services. We acknowledge all donations with a letter providing the information for your tax records.
