Mike Romero, a member of the rifle team in the honor guard at American Legion Post 4666, holds an M-1 rifle during a funeral service for a fallen veteran at Fort Logan National Cemetery.

The men gathered around a flatbed truck, handing out seven old but well-maintained M-1 rifles and clips of blank ammunition.

The 11 men from the Pat Hannon Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4666 in Littleton, some in their 80s, then walked to a shelter at Fort Logan National Cemetery on Nov. 6. They positioned themselves as they had a thousand times before and waited for the funeral party to arrive.
