PA Army National Guard Funeral Honors Progam
Now Limited to Philadephia, Annville Areas

Scarnati 'Shocked, Saddened' by Decision

Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati (R-25) and Senator Lisa Baker (R-20), Chair of the Senate Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness Committee, have significant concerns with changes made to the Pennsylvania Army National Guard Funeral Honors program.

“The attached letter to Adjutant General Wesley Craig addresses our concerns. We urgently request a reversal of this policy so that all veterans, regardless of their place of passing, can be honored with the final farewell they have so courageously earned through their honorable service to our nation and our Commonwealth”.
