Jim Van Lone was an original member of the KAVV, as well as a member of the Honor Guard, and he was a friend.
I think it is fair to say that all of you have witnessed first hand how the KAVV Honor Guard is profoundly important to the families that request our service. You probably know that the KAVV has been described as a “Dead Man’s Club”. Well the current leadership is determined to change that. The KAVV now has Honor Guard Associate Members. The first such member is Tom “Woody” Visintainer, pictured below at his first funeral. Welcome Woody, we’re glad to have you!
At Noon our friends at Mission BBQ celebrated by feeding us one of their great sandwiches for FREE. The KAVV Honor Guard escorted the Colors at Noon to begin the feast.
The frigid temperatures have not slowed down the KAVV Honor Guard!
