My dinner

So I was able to go to an Order of the Sword Ceremony. "The Order of the Sword is the highest honor the enlisted corps can bestow on an individual and recognizes someone for significant contributions to the enlisted force." You can also read about it at: here. It was a great night. The Air Force Honor Guard Drill Team did a demonstration w/ their rifles, there was a bagpipe and a lot of pomp and circumstance. It was a really cool experience.

I was on escort duty and was at the airport to receive the General. When we met him he diverted us all to his wife to ensure we said hello to her first. It was really nice to meet and talk him and his wife and his visitors. He was very entertaining and made sure to talk to all 350+ enlisted troops there to honor him.

The picture below is of my table setting.
