Honor Guard Charge H andpicked to serve as a member of the RAF Lakenheath Base Honor Guard, my standards of conduct and level of professionalism must be above reproach, for I represent all others in my service. O thers earned the right for me to wear the ceremonial uniform, one that is honored in rich tradition and history. I will honor their memory by wearing it properly and proudly. N ever 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 movement throughout every drill and ceremony. O bligated by my oath I am constantly driven to excel by a deep devotion to duty and a strong sense of dedication. R epresenting 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.
