Kunsan AB Honor Guard Charge
Handpicked to serve as a member of the Kunsan Air Base Honor Guard, my standards of conduct and level of professionalism must be above reproach, for I represent all others in my service.
Others earned the right for me to wear the Ceremonial uniform, one that is honored in a rich tradition and history. I will honor their memory by wearing it properly and proudly.
Never 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 movements throughout every Drill and Ceremony.
Obligated by my oath I am constantly driven to excel by a deep devotion to duty and a strong sense of dedication.
Representing 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.
The mission of the Kunsan AB Honor Guard is to "Represent every member, past and present, of the United States Air Force..." We accomplish our mission by selecting only the sharpest and most dedicated individuals for our team. Once these members are fully trained, they represent Kunsan and the Air Force at base-wide details to include posting of colors at wing ceremonies, community events, cordons for distinguished guests, and more.
As an Honor Guard member, you are held to higher standards, not only because you are in a highly visible position but also because of the weight it carries. "My standards of conduct and level of professionalism must be above reproach, for I represent all others in my service." These standards include dress and appearance, self-discipline, military bearing, professional behavior and overall performance both on and off duty. You will be called upon to perform details during both on and off duty hours, as well as some weekend and holiday details. Weekly mandatory practices are held in order to prepare you to perform all types of details.
NOTE: Practices are held every Tuesday from 1230-1500 at the base fitness center, second floor, unless otherwise noted.
Membership on the Honor Guard provides many benefits. There are no words to explain the feeling you get the first time you perfect your evaluation sequence, or the sense of pride that comes from doing your first funeral detail. Not only will being a member fill you with an increased sense of pride and dedication, it will be one of the most satisfying experiences of your life. Being part of the Honor Guard also helps put you one step ahead of your fellow Airmen, improving your level of professionalism and leadership skills and increasing your confidence. The Kunsan Honor Guard also has a great incentive plan that reaches out to the community. Every quarter, Honor Guard members hold two fundraisers to include foreign-object disposal checks as well as participating in community service.
Consideration for the Air Force Achievement Medal
Honor Guard members that demonstrate outstanding service to the Kunsan Honor Guard Program will be considered for the Air Force Achievement Medal. Members must, but not limited to, complete a minimum of 15 details and attend a minimum of three (3) practices a month to be considered. Other considerations, such as professional military bearing and participations, will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Members who extend at Kunsan and fulfill another Honor Guard contract must meet the same requirements.
Wing Quarterly/Annual awards and Honor Guardsman of the Month are based on a points system. The points system is based on participation/involvement as an Honor Guard member.
