Last Salute Fires a Mountain Howitzer 12 Pounder Civil War Cannon At Every Ceremony.
We have been Honored to have our cannon fired by Medal of Honor recipients,
Senators, Congressmen, The Attorney General of The United States, Mayors,
Police Chiefs, Fire Chiefs and uniformed family members of the Heroes we honor
In July of 2021 Dr. Ira Trocki made a donation to Last Salute
so that the Honor Guard could get a second cannon to expand its service
to other areas. The cannon was completed and delivered 8 November 2021
The museum quality cannon built by the contractor for the National Park Service
was about to be named and christened. Upon hearing of Mike’s passing
Dr. Trocki called Last Salute and asked us if we could name the new cannon
after Mike…. We could not think of a better way to honor Mike’s legacy.
The new cannon will be christened the “Mike D” and will be fired by Medal of
Honor recipients each year at The MCLEF event as well as many future ceremonies.
