On February 25th. A1C Joyner and A1C De La Cruz. Performed the folding of the flag at my husbands funeral. They did such a wonderful job, we were all very impressed. My husband was a 20 year veteran also serving a year in Vietnam and would have been very impressed with these young men and would want me to thank them for their dedication.

On Sunday June 14, 2015 the Shaw AFB Honor Guard performed military honors for my Father's funeral, Retired Master Sgt. Andy O. Nichols who was a Viet Nam Veteran. Their service was outstanding. My Father loved the US Air Force and he would have been proud of how the Honor Guard represented the USAF. My family is very grateful.
