"Ask not for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee."

The Bell of Honor is a beautiful, 3080 lb bell, forged in 1910. In 2010, the bell was purchased and The Bell of Honor Committee was formed. Their mission: "The Bell of Honor will be tolled as a sign of respect and honor for Fallen Heroes who have given their all. Active Military, Veterans, Police, Fire Fighters, and EMS who have made the ultimate sacrifice so the rest can exist in peace and safety. The Bell of Honor will be tolled at funerals or during special occasions worthy of the honor. The primary mission is to show the utmost respect and honor to the individual and their family. Upon the family's invitation the Bell of Honor will be present at the final resting place."

The Bell and Committee are based out of Rochester, MN, but have traveled across the country to be present at funerals and other events. Recently, the Bell of Honor was present and took part in the Military Honors for a Vietnam Era Veteran and retired member of law enforcement. The Bell, which travels in a patriotically clad trailer alongside the many flags which stand for the men and women who have served their country, is a stunning and impactful sight.
