At first, honor guard wasn’t even a thought for, then, U.S Air Force Airman 1st Class Quinton Gittens. It was only brought up briefly in conversation with a chief master sergeant; however, as the fates would have it, Gittens was tasked to start an honor guard program the very next week.
“When I started honor guard, I wasn’t the best,” explained, now, Staff Sgt. Quinton Gittens, 633rd Force Support Squadron readiness NCO in charge. “I was struggling pretty badly, but as time went on I ended up liking it, and I ended up doing really well at it.”
