The proposed Authorized Partnership Program would augment veterans' organizations assistance by providing training by the local honor guard and reimbursement for expenses. "What we have now is a formal program where veterans service organizations can be trained by the local (military) installation commander ... (to) ensure that the quality of the honors rendered are to the standard and that the funeral honors rendered in any particular place around the nation will be the same," said assistant secretary of defense for force management policy, Charles S. Abell. According to American Forces Press Service, the DoD will also provide at least two active or reserve uniformed service members to fold and present a ceremonial U.S. flag to survivors at military funerals and that at least one of the detail members be from the same service as the deceased. Also a miliif possible or a comtary member pact disc recording of "Taps" will be provided. The recording was made in Arlington National Cemetery in 1999.
