On Wednesday, May 11, 2022, the Port Huron Elks Lodge 343
held its annual dinner for the St. Clair County Allied Veterans Honor Guard in
“Sylvie’s” Banquet room of Lodge 343.
The Honor Guard is comprised of approximately 25 veterans, representing
all branches of the United States Armed Forces.
These Veterans represent the St. Clair County American Legion, Veterans
of Foreign Wars (VFW), and Disabled American Veterans (DAV) posts. These
Veterans engage in multiple ceremonies in St. Clair County, such as, Veterans
Day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, visiting retirement homes, and nursing
facilities. The St. Clair County Allied
Veterans Honor Guard averages over 250 military funeral ceremonies per year in
St. Clair County. This Honor Guard unit is a certified Volunteer Service
Organization for Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, Michigan, where once a
month they perform up to ten military funeral services per day for service men
and women. It’s a privilege for the Port
Huron Elks Lodge 343 to honor these men and women for their service.
