North Carolina Division of Prisons Honor Guard - Page 3

On a bright spring morning, members assemble in the chapel of a Raleigh funeral home and practice changing of the guard. The slow salutes and quick turns are an important part of the posting of the Honor Guard at a visitation before a funeral.

The chapel doors open onto two flights of steep brick steps that lead to the sidewalk. Honor Guard members carry a casket down the slope keeping the casket level all the way down, march down the sidewalk and then back up the steps.
