In tribute: Program helps pay last respects to vets
The Wisconsin Military Funeral Honors Program provides military personnel to conduct tributes at funerals of veterans. The Air Force rifle team shown above would typically be sent for a funeral of a service member killed in action. The program most often provides military personnel to fold and present flags to family members. (Photo supplied)
