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.

These are excellent.

The Air Force Honor Guard from Lewis-McChord were at the interment of my mom and dad last May at Tahoma National Cemetery. Outstanding work on their part.

ALL very good...

i served on Beale AFB's Honor Guard for 3 years and was a Training Flight AIC (as an A1C) way back in time (1986-1990)...

we didnt have the fancy hat devices or the silver braid on the uniform. we started with the navy blue beret (ala Security Police/Law Enforcement) then we went to white berets. we also had white ascots with the Class As, a royal blue ascot with the Class Bs. we had white aiguillettes and then got a silver rope if we had performed a certain number of details...

we had M1 (Garands) instead of M14s also. when i went to Altus AFB, they were using M16s and i trained them on the transition to M1s...
