Gun salutes are a traditional military honor recognized around the globe. Originally naval vessels would fire their weapons harmlessly out to sea as a “salute” to other vessels letting them know they were no longer armed and they meant no harm. Over the years, the 21 gun salute has become internationally recognized as the tradition and honor to Presidents, members of a reigning Royal family, etc. A gun salute, also referred to as a “three-volley salute” is the tradition recognized at military and police funerals to honor those who lost their lives. Today, and every day, we honor those fallen heroes.
