501st CSW security forces Airmen observe National Police Week

RAF CROUGHTON, United Kingdom – Airman 1st Class Daron McDaniel Jr., 422nd Security Forces Squadron, stands guard at the RAF Croughton main gate as an Elite Gate Guardsman May 15 during Police Week 2013. This one-of-a-kind look was first seen during the Cold War when Gen. Curtis LeMay implemented the first Elite Gate Guard at Offutt Air Force Base, Neb. Offutt's elite guard was originally used as "Palace Guard" security for Strategic Air Command (SAC) headquarters buildings and also provided honors for visiting SAC dignitaries and drill team exhibitions.
