Rockingham County Honor Guard cited as "Honor Guard of the Year" by the American Legion Dept. of NC.
 
County Commissioners honored the Rockingham County Honor Guard at the Aug. 20th, regular meeting of the Rockingham County Commissioners in Wentworth.  The entire meeting took on a patriotic atmosphere of gratitude as members of the Rockingham County Honor Guard filed forward to receive their recognition.  Dressed in impressive, military attire, the Rockingham County Honor Guard stood tall as Commissioners saluted them with a Certificate of Achievement after being cited as "Honor Guard of the Year" by the American Legion Dept. of North Carolina.  

The state award was presented to the Rockingham County Honor Guard on June 29th, at the American Legion's Summer Conference for North Carolina, in Raleigh.  Honor Guard Commander Tommy Allen spoke on behalf of the group, thanking Commissioners for the County's recognition, and explaining how the Rockingham County Honor Guard does 21-gun-salutes, plays taps, and presents colors for special programs.  They volunteer with militiary rites for burials; and they are involved with the Veterans Park Committee, Veterans Coalition, Veterans Day, Memorial Day, and the Veterans Stand Down.

County Commissioners presented Rockingham County lapel pins to members of the Rockingham County Honor Guard.  Commander Allen thanked wives of the members who were present at the Board meeting.
