SacRT Connection to Presidential Honor Guard

January 14, 2019 General

On December 5, 2018, as former President George H.W. Bush laid in repose all night at the Houston church where his funeral was held the next day, Andre Bryant’s, SacRT Facilities Service Worker, son, 22-year-old Marine Corp Andre Kevin Bryant served as an Honor Guard two times throughout the night.

All branches of the military were present and every soldier from each Platoon that was present served as an Honor Guard in half hour increments throughout the night.

“I stayed up half the night so I could catch it live on a feed from a Houston station, he was on once at 2 a.m. and again at 4 a.m., said Andre.  “It was definitely an honor for me to see him up there.”

This is Andre’s son’s second year of service as an Honor Guard.
