LITTLE ROCK AIR FORCE BASE, Ark. --
The base Honor Guard demonstrated a full-military honors funeral ceremony Oct. 6, 2016, at Little Rock Air Force Base, Arkansas.
The demonstration showcased the Honor Guard’s capabilities and mentored new team Little Rock Members on funeral services procedures.
The base Honor Guard is comprised of installation Airmen who either volunteer or are handpicked from their squadrons to serve as Ceremonial Guardsmen for six month tours.
The training develops the precision required to render honors for fallen service members.
“The base Honor Guard dedicates many hours to training in order to honor fallen Airmen in a precise, professional and dignified manner,” said U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Jason Crumpton, Little Rock Air Force Base Honor Guard superintendent.
