Thirty-two active-duty Airmen and Guardians from the Air Force Research Laboratory, or AFRL, conducted a Retreat ceremony Dec. 5, 2022 at 5 p.m. in front of AFRL headquarters, building 15 at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. Col. Joel Luker, AFRL vice commander, led the formation for the Retreat ceremony, which honors the U.S. flag when lowered in the evening and signals the end of the duty day. A seven-member flag detail accomplished the flag lowering and folding, while 25 others rendered salutes in formation. (U.S. Air Force photo / 1st Lt. Isaiah Sanders)
