    Keesler Air Force Base Honor Guard

Honor Guard

The mission of the Keesler Air Force Base Honor Guard is to represent the Air Force by providing Military Honors at the request of the families for our fallen comrades. Our Honor Guard provides Honors for an area that covers over 50,000 square miles, roughly 68 counties, over the southern half of both Mississippi and Louisiana. ” 

Keesler Public Affairs

The Keesler Air Force Base Honor Guard is trained to provide military honors with precision, professionalism, and pride, striving to exceed even our own rigorous Air Force standards by demonstrating the highest level of commitment while representing the United States Air Force and Keesler Air Force Base.

We provide honors for other ceremonies attended by the general public such as Change of Command, retirements, and parades.
