The ultimate goal of the Honor Guard is "To Honor With Dignity". The Joint Base San Antonio Air Force Base Honor Guard, part of the 502d Air Base Wing, provides military funeral honors for all active duty members, retirees, and veterans who have served honorably in the Army Air Corps, Army Air Forces or the Air Force. The Honor Guard also provides "Colors" support for promotions, retirements, change-of-commands, recognition ceremonies, and other base/civic activities.
The vision of the Joint Base San Antonio Base Honor Guard is to ensure a legacy of Airmen who promote the mission, protect the standards, perfect the image and preserve the heritage of the organization.
The Honor Guard supports a 65,000 square mile region throughout 69 counties, comprised of the Southern portion of Texas.
