LENAWEE COUNTY SHERIFF'S

HONOR GUARD

 Lt. Jim Craig, Honor Guard Commander

     The Lenawee County Sheriff's Honor Guard is made up of 10 volunteer officers from all divisions within the Sheriff's Department. The unit was formed in January 2004 for the purpose of providing appropriate military style honors for the Lenawee County Sheriff's Deputies slain in the line of duty and those who have retired. This unit has been in attendance at funeral services for fallen officers in several states since that date. The Honor Guard unit has performed duties such as posting of the colors at civic events, visiting senators, as well as attending parades throughout the county.

     The Lenawee County Sheriff's Honor Guard Unit has been trained in casket watch, flag folding, firing party, and Color Guard.  In 2009 Lt. Craig and Corrections Officer Doug Lucey had the priviledge of training with United States Army 3D Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) at Fort Myer, Arlington Virginia.  Corrections Officer Lucey also had the distinct honor of placing a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery while training with The Old Guard.

     Lt. Craig and Corrections Officer Lucy have served as instructors at the Goshen Police Department Honor Guard camps and D.F.L. Honor Guard camp. They have taught at Honor Guard Schools in Goshen Indiana, Ingham County Michigan, Wyandotte Michigan, and Hagerstown Maryland. They also have trained police and fire fighters in military style honors for those slain in the line of duty and those who have retired.
