Last Salute Named Official Military Honor Guard For Galloway Twp.

The all-volunteer military funeral honor guard LAST SALUTE attached to VFW Post 9462 Absecon NJ was officially made Galloway Township’s military funeral honor guard at its July 2017 council meeting by unanimous council vote (Resolution #203-17). The official status may help the unit obtain needed memorial funeral flags for services which may require expedited action or more than one flag. It may also help in obtaining no cost blank ammunition for the ceremonial rifles which are fired at every service. Currently, the units primary funding is the Galloway Patriot newspaper and donations from community members that want to help Last Salute bury our many Atlantic County veterans and active duty personnel with the dignity and honor they deserve. Last Salute provides highly professional and elaborate military funeral ceremonies at no cost to local families of fallen heroes. These services include military caisson, cannon salute, memorial bell, rifle salute, flag folding and casket guard.

We want to sincerely express our thanks to Galloway Council and our community for all their support in accomplishing our mission. Special thanks to Deputy Mayor Tony Coppola for his ongoing support of Last Salute and veteran’s issues. All the members of Galloway Council are great supporters of America’s veterans.
