HOUSTON – Isaiah Ehlinger graduated from Kimball High school in 2015. This weekend he will be part of a much higher profile celebration.

On Sunday Ehlinger will hold the United States Air Force flag during the National Anthem at the Super Bowl.

When he originally enlisted Ehlinger thought he was going to be an EMT or fireman, but says he is right where he wants to be.

“This is where I want to be, I will spend all four years in the Honor Guard. I just love what I do right now and I don’t see any reason to cut it short,” says Ehlinger.

During basic training Ehlinger was selected to be a part of the USAF Honor Guard. He was one of only 14 people selected out of 1200.

Since he joined the USAF Honor Guard, Ehlinger has been at President Trump’s Inauguration, multiple events with domestic and foreign dignitaries, and even led the Washington Redskins onto the field before one of their games.

“The Redskins game was volunteer opportunity, it’s not typically what I do. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity,” says Ehlinger.

Though he is involved with a lot of large events, his main duty is to Arlington Natural Cemetery where he stands guard at four to six funerals a day.

The United States Air Force Honor Guard also protects National Monuments and support the Military District of Washington.

Ehlinger says he has always lived by the phrase “bloom where your planted”. His efforts did not go unnoticed and he now will present colors at one of the biggest events of the year.
