Dear Gentlemen of the York County Veterans Honor Guard,
We want to send you our deepest thanks for the ceremony presented at our father?s funeral, Paul E. Abel. He served in the Navy during World War II and he was very proud of the service he gave his country. It meant a lot to him and to his family that he was honored in such a professional and memorable way. The flag will always be a reminder of him and his duty to his country.

We sincerely thank you again for taking the time to honor our father.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart and my family's for honoring my father earlier this week at Mt. Rose Cemetery. He was very proud to have served in the navy and your presentation of the flag, gun salute and playing of taps meant a lot to us and I know it meant the world to my dad. Thank you again for taking your time for my father and all the other veterans out there. Blessings to you.

On behalf of my entire family, I want to thank you for bestowing honors at the cemetery last week for my father, Frank Wilson. He was proud to serve his country in the United States Coast Guard during WWII. We were all moved and proud last week hearing the words spoken, the rifles shot, the flag folded and presented to my mother, and taps played for my Dad. I know the presentation of these honors are something my mother, us children, their grandchildren and great-grandchildren will always remember. Thank you again for your time and to provide these honors to fellow veterans.

The honor guard service at my grandfather's internment today was incredible. William Lutz was a hero. He fought in Normandy, Bastogne, Holland, and the invasion of Germany. He earned 2 bronze stars, and received 2 purple hearts. His unit, the 501PIR, part of the 101st Airbornee, was the only unit in WWII to receive 2. General Eisenhower pinned my grandfather personally. Your unit was crisp and should be proud of their service to honor such gentlemen.

I want to thank you so much for your honorable services at my father's funeral yesterday (February 13, 2015). My father was very proud to have served his country and he deserved to be sent off in honor and this would not have been possible without you. Dad will be missed but he will live with me forever.
Thank You so much.
I will be in touch again.

I attended my uncle's funeral on March 14, 2014 at Holy Saviour Cemetery in York. My uncle served in World War II. It was an absolute privilege to be in attendance and witness your Honor Guard pay their last respects to a comrade with such respect and honor and reverence each of you demonstrated yesterday. I have never witnessed a 21-gun salute in person or the playing of Taps, and it is a very powerful and humbling moment, I am grateful to each one of you for your service to our country, but witnessing this very solemn tradition yesterday made me even more proud to be an American. I wish to personally thank each member of the Honor Guard for participating yesterday. It was a beautiful tribute to my uncle. My family thanks you all. With sincere gratitude, Mary Gladwell

With sincere and heart felt gratitude, I want to thank you for your honorable grave site services for my brother, Charles N. Kilgore, on March 5, 2014 at Susquehanna Memorial Gardens. Your service was impeccable. Service to his country was very important to him. I know his spirit was very honored, as was his family. Thank you to all your volunteers for honoring veterans. There is no greater honor than serving God and Country. Sincerely, Mary J Kilgore

Our Father was recently buried at Holy Savior Cemetery with Military Honors. He served 25 years in the U.S. Navy.

The ceremony was quite impressive and what a tribute to our Father. The members of the Guard performed their duties with the utmost respect and professionalism.

We wish to thank all the members of the Honor Guard for volunteering your time and service for honoring the deceased veterans throughout the county. Your service now and in the past is greatly appreciated and will be remembered for years to come.

Respectfully -
Gary Spence and the entire Spence Family
