Letter to the editor: Honor Guard members to perform bugler detail
VFW Post 7564 Honor Guard, West Fargo, North Dakota, has made a decision that our Veterans have the honor to preside over the funerals of our fallen comrades. We have an Honor Guard made up of all volunteers, they have expressed the desire that they be given the duty and obligation of performing full military honors for those men and women who have served this nation in the Armed Forces of the United States.
This decision was made with no malice towards or disrespect intended for Alexandria Davis. Alex has done a good job as bugler for the Post, however the decision was made by the Honor Guard that they would perform this detail based on the desire of the Honor Guard to fully participate as the funeral detail.
This is service of veterans by veterans.
Russell Berg, commander
Daryl Best, color guard
Eugene Cross, honor guard captain
