Alas, as is in many cases, these sailors were "detailed" for HG duty and not and not true members of an HG. Still, no excuse for leaving rifles lying arounds, and the NCOIC/OIC should be held accountable also.

It's a shame, the Honor Guard represents the respect for the deceased, the honor of the Unit, and for themselves. I'd say they failed to deliver on this occasion!
