Proud of our Honor Guard!
Happy Saturday to all of our "Supporters." The page has gained quite a few new "likes" lately so I wanted to welcome everyone.
This page is administered by myself and a few other Honor Guard members and we love to see all the members from around the World. This page focuses on the CAL FIRE Local 2881 Honor Guard. We try to keep you informed of what we are doing and who we are. As the Pipe Major of the Pipes & Drums of this outstanding Honor Guard, I tend to have more information on band stuff but try to spread the wealth as much as possible. Our two photographers share amazing pictures of the entire group when they can. We also promote Honor Guard merchandise as much as we can.
This page tries hard to stay out of politics, and strives to be a source of positive information. There are enough sites that focus on politics and finding blame with how something is run. We also try to respect the families of our fallen to the greatest extent possible so we wait to get official word on any services and keep the families in mind when pictures are posted. We love to get input from our "Supporters" out there but keep the above guidelines in mind. We've had some fantastic photos and video shared from all of you; Thanks!
This page is linked to as many service Honor Guards and Pipe Bands as I can find. Plus, I've liked vendors that have supported us or I know are reputable for things such as pipe band supplies. I have no problem sharing the services of others but I will remove any posts that are merely soliciting. I also have linked a number of military pages. Many of the Honor Guard members are veterans and there are some special links between both the CAL FIRE family, the Honor Guard and some military pages. Finally, I am far from a professional editor and my poor spelling, typing, and eyesight seem to find their way into posts. I apologize up front!
So, that is just a bit of who we are, some ground rules, and a hearty WELCOME to everyone on the page. Let's get over 1500 soon!!!
Cheers, Charlie Martin
