New members must be physically capable of performing all of the ceremonial task we provide. These consist of performing casket postings for 15 minute periods at a time, marching, carrying and posting flags at events and performing rifle firings with a 9.5lb M-1 rifle at funeral ceremonies, and standing in formation, occasionally up to an hour at a time. Once trained and satisfactorily evaluated, AVHG will issue a uniform to you, which is returnable upon termination. Alternatively, you may purchase your AVHG uniform.
