MIAMI, Fla. -- The 45th Space Wing Honor Guard carried the colors onto the field of Sun Life Stadium last Sunday, Dec. 16, for the game between the Miami Dolphins
and the Jacksonville Jaguars.

While the colors were being rendered, football players from the Dolphins joined hands with children from the local schools around Miami for a moment of silence for those victims killed in Newtown, Conn., at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

"It is an honor and a privilege to be able to carry the Nation's colors to events such as this one. We represent not only the Air Force to the rest of the Nation, but also the 45th Space Wing, and we are all proud to be a part
of it," said 2nd Lt. Steven Braddick, commander of the 45th Space Wing Color
Guard.

The Dolphins achieved a victory in the game against the Jaguars.
