Artist's Description

The proper procedure for presenting spent shell casings to the PNOK is as follows …

Three spent shell casings, one from each of the three volleys, should be retrieved from the ground after the casings have cooled. Usually, the Rifle Squad Detail Leader retrieves the shells while those in attendance are focusing their attention on the Funeral Flag presentation to the PNOK.

The three casings are then presented separately to the PNOK after the ceremony has concluded, but before the PNOK leaves the cemetery. The casings can be presented “loose” or they can be placed into a display box.

The remaining shell casings can be presented separately to the PNOK so that he/she can distribute them to family or friends.

The three spent shell casings represent Duty, Honor, Country.
