The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency's "Honor Guard"

Officer pictureOfficer imageThe TWRA Honor Guard is a 20 man team formed by wildlife officers throughout the state.  The mission of the team is to represent the agency and honor the officer when he/she is killed in the line of duty, dies of duty, or is a retired officer who passes away.

Some of the ways officers are honored include team members assisting the families left behind with funeral planning, Honor Guard presence during visitation/funeral services, and other customary services bestowed to fallen law-enforcement officers.

While the team may be called to assist with ceremonial services such as presentation of the colors occasionally, their primary mission is to honor the life of fallen wildlife officers, both active and retired, and support their families for the sacrifices the officer has made throughout their career.
