Solemn ceremony
PATRICK AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. -- Patrick Honor Guard members train for a military funeral detail. HG is made up of volunteer members representing various Air Force units on Patrick AFB and Cape Canaveral AFS, who serve on one of three rotating flights, for one year minimum. Getting these Airmen trained and keeping them consistently sharp is a time-consuming, behind-the-scenes effort of HG Superintendent Master Sgt. Kevin Matthews and a team of professional full-time staff members, who augment, conduct day-to-day operations, training and assist with details. (U.S. Air Force photo by Julie Dayringer)
