The mere presence of the Honor Guard draws attention and raises the formality of the event. The Honor Guard is called upon to perform details that are both physically and emotionally draining and therefore need the proper preparation and training for any event, from a parade to a full honors Line of Duty Death. To prepare for this duty, officers participate in courses consisting of lecture and practical applications which provide them with detailed instruction on the duties and responsibilities of the Honor Guard.

"The guest of honor was indeed surprised and the attendees were very impressed with the dignity of
the presentation."
