BATAAN DAY | Members of the United States Air Force Honor Guard participate in a joint service wreath laying ceremony commemorating Bataan Day at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery, Arlington, Va., April 9, 1963. During World War II, approximately 78,000 Allied troops (12,000 Americans and 66,000 Filipinos) surrendered to the Japanese at the tip of the Bataan Peninsula in the Philippines on April 9, 1942. The troops fought under extremely adverse conditions for nearly five months prior to the surrender as they ran out of food, medical supplies, and ammunition. #throwbackthursday #tohonorwithdignity

TRAINING | Senior Airman Jeremy Luning trains fellow members of the colors element on military funeral sequences at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling, Feb. 28, 2019. It's important for guardsmen to be familiar with the sequences and be open to feedback before they obtain qualifications for different positions. Note: The reason the U.S. national flag is replaced with a state flag is to ensure the respect and dignity of the national is maintained, and to not impede the training of the other elements. During training there's potential for the flag to be dropped or damaged
