"The Honor Guard" at Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall in Arlington, Virginia conducts memorial affairs to honor fallen heroes and to take part in ceremonies and special events. Memorial affairs missions include standard and full honors funerals in Arlington National Cemetery as well as dignified transfers of fallen soldiers from Dover Air Force Base. The Honor Guard's ceremonial task list also includes full honor arrivals for visiting dignitaries, wreath ceremonies at the Tomb of the Unknowns.
