Minnesota Law Enforcement Memorial Association


Camp is scheduled for Sunday, September 14th – Thursday, September 18th.

Every year, law enforcement honor guards from Minnesota and neighboring states come to the Minnesota Army National Guard training center at Camp Ripley, MN to train and practice military drill and ceremony. Officers learn how to post and present colors, fire ceremonial salutes with rifle, handgun, and shotgun, and how to stand ceremonial guard duty. In addition, attendees learn how to plan and organize funerals and ceremonies. LEMA Honor Guard Camp is the first such training camp in the US.

Training camp starts on Sunday, September 14, 2014 till Thursday, September 18, 2014
