Last Salute is a 501C Veterans Services Organization comprised of volunteer veterans committed to providing honorable military  funeral services to miliary personel and veterans.  Web-site www.LastSalute.US

We provide elaborate ceremonial funeral services such as a gun salute (often referred to as a 21 gun salute), bugle taps, transportation of the flag covered casket in our military humvee gun carriage/caisson, flag folding and presentation, funeral march, casket guard, rifle shell presentation and other funeral services for those who have served our country.

One of the most impactful and memorable services we provide is the "Cannon Salute".  Our Civil War cannon, the "Jaime Lee" fires a single volley at each funeral.  This unique artillery salute is only preformed by Last Salute or at Arlington National Cemetery.

Donations will be used for fuel, maintenance, equipment and uniform expenditures as well as powder and fuses for the cannon.  No funds will be used for compensation of labor or physical service.  We simply need to maintain equipment with our biggest cost being the military humvee and gun carriage to transport our fallen brothers and sisters to thier final resting place.

The familes of those we honor are very emotionally moved by the services provided.  It shows them just how much their loved ones service and sacrifice to our country means. 

Help us continue and expand the service we are committed to provide.  Help us honor those who served our country.

"On behalf of the president of the United States and a grateful nation, please accept this flag as a symbol of our appreciation for your loved ones honorable and dedicated service"
