                                                                                                          -Webster's New World Dictionary

Tradition, Service, and Honor - these words reflect well the spirit of the Southeast Iowa Regional Fire Honor Guard. It takes discipline and commitment to be a part of this elite group. Each member is handpicked and must adhere to strict grooming standards at all times. He or she must also be willing to travel on short notice. Other criteria used to choose these select few include familiarity with marching or drilling and knowledge of ceremonial procedures.

To represesent the "best of the American fire service" these firefighters must maintain proficiency through practice and training. Through this training, commitment, and precision, the presentation of the flag at a fallen firefighter's burial is not only reverent, but awe-inspiring. It is not uncommon for a solemn hush to come over the crowd - commands snapped and motions precise - with pride looming in the air in anticipation of the Honor Guard making their way forward carrying the pride of America - our national flag.
