                         CHAPTER 1--ORGANIZATION
 
Sec. 114. Funeral honors functions at funerals for veterans

    Subject to such regulations and restrictions as may be prescribed by 
the Secretary concerned, the performance of funeral honors functions by 
members of the National Guard at funerals for veterans of the armed 
forces may be treated by the Secretary concerned as a Federal function 
for which appropriated funds may be used. Any such performance of 
funeral honors functions at such a funeral may not be considered to be a 
period of drill or training, but may be performed as funeral honors duty 
under section 115 of this title.
