  SJAFB Honor Guard  

AF Star Bullet
About us . . .

The Honor Guard program is set up in accordance with AFI 34-501, Mortuary Affairs Program. The Guard is a Wing Commander’s program composed of 33 outstanding Airmen from various base squadrons. The 4th Force Support Squadron maintains the program. Team members are assigned to the Honor Guard for a period of 365 days. During this time, members are expected to become proficient in the areas of pall bearing, Firing Party, flag folding, presentation of colors, saber bearing, presentation of the flag, retreat, positioning of the colors, change of command ceremonies, armed cordon, visiting dignitary honors, and other Wing directed activities. The Air Force Achievement Medal is awarded to members who are proficient in all Honor Guard tasks and exceed the standards in the areas of dress and appearance, attitude, and leadership. Annually, the Honor Guard performs around 900 details, including veteran and retiree funerals, numerous colors details, and a variety of other community service events.

Mission

Represent the 4th Fighter Wing by providing services including military honors for deceased military personnel and other ceremonies on Seymour Johnson Air Force Base, in the local community and throughout North Carolina and Virginia. Representing the finest traditions of the Air Force and Seymour Johnson Air Force Base ... anytime, anywhere.

Honor Guard Creed

Handpicked to serve as a member of the Seymour Johnson AFB, my standards of conduct and level of professionalism must be above reproach, for all others in my service.

Others earned the right for me to wear the ceremonial uniform, one that is honored in a rich tradition and history. I will honor their memory by wearing it properly and proudly.

Never will I allow my performance to be dictated by the type of ceremony, severity of the temperature, or size of the crowd. I will remain superbly conditioned to perfect all movements throughout every drill and ceremony

Obligated by oath I am constantly driven to excel by a deep devotion to duty and a strong sense of dedication.

Representing every member, past and present, of the United States Air Force, I vow to stand sharp, crisp and motionless, for I am a Ceremonial Guardsman.
