KEYSTONE, S.D. – Casey Osback, a park ranger at Mount Rushmore National Memorial, was recently selected through a competitive process as a member of the National Park Service’s nationwide Honor Guard Program. The NPS Honor Guard, a highly trained precision team, was established four years ago and is comprised of ten park rangers from national park sites around the country. The Honor Guard represents the agency and its employees and families at employee funerals when the death was suffered in the line of duty. The Honor Guard is also deployed to ceremonies, parades, and special events of national significance, or at any event at the request of the Director of the National Park Service. In addition to being available for duty with the Honor Guard on short notice, Ranger Osback performs protection, emergency services, resource management, and resource education duties at the Memorial.
