I dont think thats the AFA. Usually they have the cadets (honor guard)perform the ceremonies, not airmen/NCO's. They still use the beautiful M14's though and not the plastic toys. (Thinking to myself) It could be at the USAFA cemetary but they dont have those trees in there.

You are correct that they are not AFA. Std enlisted lapel brass and stripes but strange cap brass. Is that the new AF emblem on their caps? I see sleeve cords and silver cap trim so I guess that's just a Honor Guard uniform.
Cool looking rifles for sure,,BUT,,not a safety on in the bunch,and the one guy has is trigger finger ready to go!!! Yikes!! I guess as long as there pointed UP it should be ok.... :roll: All they need are the pig stickers on the end they they would be TOTALY ready!
