71SFS at parade rest

The 71st Security Forces Squadron ended a week-long celebration of National Police Week with a retreat ceremony Friday, May 18, at the flag pole at Vance Air Force Base, Okla. Senior Master Sgt. Torrance Martin, foreground, the 71st SFS operations superintendent, stands at parade rest with his Airmen during the ceremony. Events held throughout the week included a 20-mile torch run through the Enid, Okla., community, a candle-light vigil in the base Chapel and a Cops-for-Kids day display of equipment and security personnel. National Police Week was started by President John F. Kennedy in 1962 when he signed a proclamation designating May 15 as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the week in which it falls as Police Week.
