After spending some time serving on the Base Honor Guard detail, I thought I'd take it upon my self to try to photograph these individuals as often as possible with my busy work schedule. They deserve to at least have some decent photos to look back at to remember their heritage.The hours and dedication required to become proficient are profound. There is no extra pay, the hours are long, the training is difficult and they are dealing with grieving families. Handing our flag over to a distraught family member while holding your composure together is no easy task. This is why some are very opinionated about how our flag is treated. I'm not being political, simply educating.
These were taken during a recent Guardsmen Graduation Ceremony. I hope you like them.
