Dyess Honor Guard's main mission is to provide military funeral honors within 34k sq miles covering 910 zip codes in West Texas.
We are the 7 FSS Dyess Honor Guard. Our mission is to provide honors for Active, Retiree, and Veteran service members during many ceremonious occasions. We can be seen at Promotions, Retirements, and funerals for those who are or have served in the United States military. At other times we dedicate volunteer hours to local colleges, homeless shelters, and the Department of Defense. Our professionalism can be seen across 58,000 square miles of the Inland Northwest every year. These services range from the presentation of colors, firing teams, and the playing of the bugle.
As the 7 FSS Mortuary Affairs, we are equipped to support the family through with military funerals and help them understand what benefits are available. Our 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 our honor and duty to ensure that the family is taken care of and that those who have passed are treated with the utmost respect and honor.
As the Dyess Casualty Assistance Representative, we provide 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.
