Cannon

Last Salute’s prized Civil War cannon, the “Jaime Lee” is used to honor the fallen at each funeral ceremony. It is also fired at veterans events on Memorial Day and Veterans Day as well as other events or ceremonies honoring those who have served.

Most often, at events other than funerals, the Jaime Lee is fired by an attending dignitary or special guest.  We would like to thank all those who have fired the Jaime Lee in honor of those who have served, sacrificed and preserved our freedom.

Below are just a few of the many who have fired the “Jaime Lee” to honor our nation’s military and veterans:
