Last Salute Provides Services For Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines

Last Salute is a full service Military Funeral Honor Guard serving Atlantic County New Jersey and provides FREE military funeral ceremonies for active and veteran military personnel from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. Last Salute conducts over 100 ceremonies a year and is a 501(C)3 W-30 Veterans Service Organization.

Last Salute is the Official Military Funeral Honor Guard of Galloway Twp., Atlantic City and Tuckerton.

Last Salute is a dedicated group of all volunteer military veterans committed to providing our fallen brothers and sisters with dignified and appropriate final services.

Our mission is to honor the fallen and comfort their families. It is in their memory that we conduct these final honors. Last Salute focuses its ceremonial honors with deep respect for our fallen brethren and their service. All aspects and details of our ceremonies are a humble tribute to the honorable service of those we honor. Just as the “Tomb Guard” at the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier in Arlington wears no rank so that no guard outranks those they honor, Last Salute’s Sgt. at Arms wears no ribbons or medals in deference to the distinctions awarded the fallen.

The Last Salute Award Winning Honor Guard can provide:

Casket Guard (Guard With Rifle Stands at casket during viewing)
Pallbearers
Caisson Service (Humvee & Gun Carriage)
Honor March (Alongside Gun Carriage)
Memorial Bell Sounding (3 bells)
Gun Salute (3 volleys)
Taps
Flag Folding and Presentation

Our most sacred possession, the Last Salute prayer box. This box is made of wood taken from the inside of the old Assumption Church. It is over 100 years old and has been through countless religious ceremonies. Within this box we keep a prayer card or photo of every fallen hero we lay to rest. It is placed inside by a family member and then their loved one becomes a permanent part of our honor guard and travels with us…… always.
