We are Semper Fi #1
Memorial Honor Detail

The Semper Fi #1 Memorial Honor Detail is an established organization consisting of retired or veteran Marines who are volunteering their time to honor those veterans that are interred at

Riverside National Cemetery

The Details consist of a Color Guard, Rifle Detail, Bag Piper, Bugler, and Flag Folders.  The ceremony begins with a short presentation before the bugler sounds attention, which is then followed by a Three Volley Rifle salute and folding of the
United States of America flag.
Ending the ceremony, the flag is then presented to the next of kin.  The color guard exits the shelter, regroups with the riflemen and flag folders for the final command to depart.  The ceremony ends as the team leader marches the entire detail with the command,
"Semper Fi 1, Forward March".

 We have four details which are the Scarlet, Gold, Blue, and Green plus a special detail named the S. E. T. Team which is the Special Events Team..
