Mortuary Affairs & Honor Guard

Mortuary Affairs & Honor Guard

The Maxwell-Gunter Honor Guard provides honors for Active, Retiree, and Veteran service members during many ceremonious occasions. They can be seen at Promotions, Retirements, and funerals for those who are or have served in the United States military. At other times they dedicate volunteer hours to local colleges, homeless shelters, and the Department of Defense. Their professionalism can be seen across 58,000 square miles from Alabama to Georgia every year. Services they provide range from the presentation of colors, firing teams, or the playing of the bugle.

Mortuary Affairs is equipped to support the family through with military funerals and help them understand what benefits are available. Key services include the handling of funeral operations, organization of the Honor Guard, the travel plans of fallen military members and their families, and financial expenses. It is their duty to ensure that the family is taken care of and that those who have passed are treated with the utmost respect and honor.

Casualty / Survivor Benefit Program (SBP)

The Maxwell-Gunter Casualty Assistance Representative provides comprehensive casualty assistance to both retired and active duty family members in the event of a service member’s death. This assistance includes filing for benefits and entitlements from the service member’s branch of service, governmental agencies, nongovernmental agencies, and the Department of Veteran Affairs.

    Who We Honor First

    Please understand that funeral honors take precedence over all other Honor Guard activities. There is always a chance that non-funeral requests will be denied or cancelled if the Honor Guard becomes overtasked with funeral ceremonies.

    Postings for retirements and promotions must meet the following criteria.  Promotions:  Person being honored must be promoted to the grade of Chief Master Sergeant  for enlisted or Colonel for officers, and SES for civilians. Retirements:  Person being honored must be in the grade of Chief Master Sergeant for enlisted or Colonel for officers and SES for civilians.
