The services provided by our all volunteer detail are completely free. Some of these services are quite costly.

Your contribution is what makes our ability to complete our mission possible.  Last Salute wants to provide the highest quality, most professional and elaborate military funeral honors as possible.  Those who served deserve no less.

The cost of fuel and maintenance on the military vehicles is substantial. Other costs incurred include but are not limited to

Uniform procurement and maintenance (we must look as sharp as possible).
Cannon maintenance, fuses and powder (about $45 each time we fire).
Rifle maintenance, we use WW2 era M1 Garand rifles which require replacement parts and maintenance.
Travel expenses, primarily fuel (as related to meeting with families, funeral directors or other specific service arrangement requirements).

The gun carriage Humvee and  Caisson Humvee are by far our most costly expense. Prior to each funeral, we clean and service the Humvees as well as do paint touch ups or other repairs as needed.  The tactical black “Gun Carriage”Humvees dash is signed by 10 Medal of Honor recipients and the fully up armored combat camouflage Caisson Humvee is signed by 6 Medal of Honor recipients.

Thank you for your support.  We are eternally grateful.
