These are the pictures of 'Sister Wives' star Garrison Brown's military ceremony.

Though photos of Garrison’s personal family funeral may never be released, the Nevada National Guard, where Garrison worked, honored his death with a lengthy post on Facebook accompanied by images from the ceremony.

"Soldiers from the 1st Squadron, 221st Cavalry, along with friends and family, gathered yesterday at the Clark County Armory to honor the memory of Staff Sgt. Robert Garrison Brown, who passed away on March 4," the post explained.

The post also delved into some personal memories from Garrison's life, including those shared by his family. Then, it discussed his service with the National Guard.

"As a Staff Sergeant in the Army National Guard and a proud CAV Scout, Brown exemplified dedication to his country. He also had a caring nature, pursuing a career in nursing to help others," the post read.

Garrison died by suicide, and the National Guard were not the only people who paid tribute to him in the aftermath of his death.

Garrison's brother Hunter also paid tribute to his brother.

In a post of his own on Instagram, Hunter eulogized his brother, and also shared a photo of himself at Garrison's military remembrance.

"I have no eulogy to give or long caption for you to read. All I can say is that I love Garrison and he has always been and will always be a huge part of my life. I will forever work at being better at enjoying every moment, big or small, with my loved ones. I would encourage you to do the same!" he wrote in part.

Photos from the ceremony show the entire family in mourning, alongside the official rituals that accompany any military celebration of life. Although Garrison didn't die in the line of duty, he received the ceremony nonetheless.
