Love and honor | Guarding what's dear

In 1953, when John A. Urevich volunteered to be drafted, he didn't know if he was going to Korea or some other conflict during the Cold War era. As it turns out, his story took a very lucky turn when he was selected to serve his country in a different way. Humble beginnings created an even humbler man, whose caliber was matched by the position he attained, a U.S. Army Honor Guard. His duty required precision and excellence during the countless hours of drills and guard changes. Even though his body and mind guarded our nation's top leaders, his heart was devoted to a special lady waiting for him to come home.
