MEET AT FRED & ETHELS in HISTORIC SMITHVILLE VILLAGE BETWEEN 9 and 9:30am Saturday MORNING MAY 26TH 2018 !!!!!!!!!!!
As you can see from our web-site, Last Salute Military Funeral Honor Guard provides elaborate dignified military funeral services for area veterans. We provided 125 services in 2017. Our services are all completely FREE. Our mission is to provide professional military honors so that no veteran is buried without receiving the honor and thanks they deserve. It is also important for the children and families of these veterans to see the appreciation of a grateful nation.
We hope you will support our mission and join us for this deeply meaningful event. We feel that we have put together a great event that includes food and beer at two locations and most importantly, a full honors ceremony at the veterans cemetery including, the firing of our Civil War cannon the “Jaime Lee”, ringing of the memorial bell, rifle salute, playing of Taps and the folding of the flag.
The Last Salute 2018 Motorcycle Run is Saturday May 26th at 10am and starts at Fred & Ethel’s Tavern in Historic Smithville Village with “Kegs & Eggs”. A great way to start your day with breakfast and beer. Breakfast will consist of eggs, home fries, a breakfast meat, juice coffee and of course a keg of Bud Light.
After breakfast we will be kickstands up and ride to the veterans cemetery for the full honors ceremony.
Immediately following the ceremony, we will then ride to the Absecon VFW for a Buffet & Beer featuring great food with Bud Light.
Cost per rider is only $40 and includes the two meals. All money above the cost of producing the event will be put directly toward helping us complete our mission of providing these military funeral services for all veterans in our service area..
The ride will be led by the Last Salute Humvees and Caisson carrying a flag draped casket.
