Who arranges for a caisson for a military funeral?
Is there a color guard requirement for a full military honor?
(revised) Full military honors includes an escort platoon, color guard, military band, and a caisson in Arlington National Cemetery (if available). The original answer may have merit in some parts of the country where a dedicated Honor Guard is not available. (original) If it's a funeral, there isn't a requirement. It's a request. You can have a full military honors funeral with just pallbearers, 21 gun salute, and flag presenter and folder.
