Among those present here were many men who had served with or under Col. Halliburton during his military career. All periods were represented, including the National Guard of the early 1900's, the Mexican border troubles of 1916, World War I and the National Guard organized after the first world war.

The guard of honor was John P. Griggs, Parker Rogers, Gene Poindexter, Leslie Neely and James Gibbons.

Military rites were conducted by the American Legion post at the grave in Park Cemetery. James Hanley and Clarence Holliday were the color bearers and Floyd Meador and C.O. Smith the color guards. Captain L. P. Hopp was in charge of the firing squad, composed of Fred Keener, John P. Griggs, Larry Johnson and Gene Poindexter. After the firing of three volleys, taps were sounded by Robert Snyder, with the echo by Robert Widner.
