A Military Moment - The Package

August 23, 2009 - TRC - By Richard L Graves, Sr.

The year was 1960.

The United States Air Force has a contract to put out to all the states and they must do it so all the states' House of Representatives get the exact notice at the same time.

As a member of the United States Air Honor Guard stationed at Bolling Air Base, Washington D.C. and also having a top secret clearance, I and other members of my squadron dressed in class A uniforms were loaded onto a bus and taken
to the Capital building. Each member was given a sealed package with the Representativeís name and room number. We were escorted to the appropriate hallway and waited for the escort to give the hand signal. Upon seeing the signal we walked through the door and presented the package to the receptionist.

Mission was complete and we returned back to base never knowing what we had delivered. Apparently it was important.
