2/11/2014 – HURLBURT FIELD, Fla. — For many day-shift Airmen, 5 p.m. falls right around the end of the duty day, and it’s also the time retreat sounds on Hurlburt Field.
While it may be tempting to wait inside until it passes or duck indoors, it’s a brief ceremony that pays respect to the American flag.
“Step outside your building, even if the music has already started, and pay respect to the flag,” said Tech. Sgt. Ross Kael, Hurlburt Field Honor Guard NCO in charge.
Service in the base honor guard gave some Airmen a unique perspective on the importance of paying respect to the flag.
