Retreat ceremony honors President’s Day

Airmen from the 50th Space Wing lower the United States Flag during a retreat ceremony in observance of President’s Day at Schriever Air Force Base, Colorado, Feb. 26, 2018. Since Feb. 19, 2018 was a federal holiday, the wing originally planned to hold the observation Feb. 16, 2018, but weather forced organizers to reschedule. Schriever regularly conducts reveille and retreat ceremonies throughout the year for special observances and to honor military tradition. Retreat signifies the end of the duty day and pays respect to the nation’s flag. (U.S. Air Force Photo by Dennis Rogers)
