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
