What is fired at a military funeral or memorial service is three rifle volleys. If there are seven riflemen in the detail, 21 rounds are fired. The gun salute is fired to honor a dignitary, and the number of guns fired varies with the seniority of the dignitary. In this country the only official who rates a 21-gun salute is the President.
