Captain Bob-

Many thanks to you and your lady for all the fine pictures.  It was a pleasure and and an honor to be able to serve as officer in charge of such a fine group.  Hope I can remember everyone's name here:  Joe Dirt, Dusty Tagalon, Captain Bob Masterson, Mescalero, Diamond Curly, Mud Marine, and Terry Lane.  Four members of the Wyoming National Guard participated and raised the large flags as the GAF color guard presented the colors to the shooters meeting.  To all the participants my sincere thanks for a job well done!

Here's some names to the faces of the GAF contingent of the Color Guard.

We have a missing man. Before we took the above pic one of our troopers got away from us, Joe Dirt is the man with the trapdoor rifle on the left side of the pic as you are looking at it.

Sagebrush,

Thanks for the id on the man with the trapdoor Col.

Who was the man between me and Mescalero, and the man between Mescalero and Mud Marine?

Art Zaldivar of Major Photography got some pics that are available for purchase of the HOW 2008 Color Guard detail, here's the link:
http://www.photoreflect.com/pr3/thumbpage.aspx?e=3927636

The first two were from a totaly different vantage point than my wife had as we were marching toward the big tent and the last four are are nearly identical to what my wife had captured in the pics posted in this thread. In fact she had caught a pic or two of Art's back when he was snaping the shot as we presented arms.
