MILITARY HONORSby the Pipes, Inc. is a 501(c)3 Non Profit Organization dedicated to providing a bagpiper for Military Funerals honoring the men and women who have honorably served and sacrificed for our country.
In 2000 Congress provided Military Funeral Honors for any military veteran discharged under honorable conditions. Such Military Honors consists of an Honor Guard with at least two uniformed service members, a presentation of the flag to the next of kin and the playing of Taps. Our pipers offer another layer of respect and gratitude to Military Honors and take their lead from the Honor Guard Team Leader to insure Military Protocols are kept to the highest traditional standards.
Many of our pipers are military veterans and present themselves as such representing the branch of service from which they served in accordance with appropriate military protocols. We provide these pipers at no cost to the family of the veterans and all travel expenses associated with getting the piper to the ceremony are covered by MILITARY HONORS by the Pipes, Inc.
The Highland Bagpipes are our way of remembering and honoring the service and sacrifice of our country’s heroes. The respect and gratitude all Americans owe our veterans is expressed in our music and each of our pipers feel honored and privileged to play for these great Americans.
