Members of the Luke Air Force Base Honor Guard march in formation, May 19, 2023, at Luke AFB, Arizona. The 56th Security Forces Squadron held a retreat ceremony to honor those of the 56th Special Operations Wing who died during the S.S. Mayaguez rescue operation. Ceremonies like these are a long-standing tradition that allow Airmen to showcase respect for U.S. Air Force heritage and those who have served before.
