From the first notification of the death of former President Ronald W. Reagan on June 5, until his interment on June 11, the 3d U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard) played a major and very public role in all phases of the Military District of Washington’s planning and execution of the state funeral for the 40th President of the United States.
