The American Legion places a high priority on honoring and remembering those who dedicated their lives to keeping our nation safe.
This information page will provide American Legion Posts in Utah with the new point of contact for the Utah Army National Guard Military Funeral Honors Office, located at Camp Williams, Utah. Posts can coordinate military funeral honors, request MFH training, and coordinate payment through the Utah Army National Guard when Military Funeral Honors are conducted as a team effort with the uniformed Army National Guard Military Funeral Honors team, or services are requested of the American Legion by that office.
