My last 2 years I have been an Air Force Honor Guard member. It's the most rewarding job of all. We conduct 6-8 Military Funeral each week. I have really seen different sides of the military over the last 19 years. Some of my most memorable times were meeting Presidents/ Vice Presidents: Ford, Clinton, Bush Sr, Bush Jr, Gore, and Cheney. But hands down the most memorable experience was the day of Sept 11th. I was 100-Ft from the entry point of the Aircraft a the Pentagon. God was definitely waith me that day.
