People also may send checks (made out to the American Legion) to any Sunset funeral home or donate online.The campaign has blossomed since Rich Darby came up with the idea four years ago.Darby, chief operations officer at Sunset Funeral Home, was attending a veteran’s funeral in the oppressive heat when he noticed that the honor guard continued to stand at attention without flinching. At that moment, he decided to do something to help the veterans, and launched Operation Honor Guard to raise money to help buy clothing and equipment.Since then, Operation Honor Guard has turned into a two-part campaign: a 5K fun run to benefit the American Legion Post 210 and the Day of Giving in the fall to raise money for several legions.This is the first year that the Day of Giving has become a national event.Last year, it raised $60,000 just at three sites and online; this year, the goal is $100,000, Darby said.All of the money raised will be disbursed to the American Legion...
