What has been the best part of serving on the Silver Talon team?

What do you enjoy about the Air Force?
"I love being able to move around to different bases. I am fortunate to have had five assignments in nine years, seven of those years overseas, so the Air Force has definitely helped me travel the world."

Do you have any words for those who would be interested in joining the Silver Talon Honor Guard Team?

If you would like to be a part of an elite team that is professional and dedicated to excellence, the Silver Talon Honor Guard is the place for you."
