By Larissa Pfeifer, Case Manager, SBWCC

The South Boise Women's Correctional Center's first Offender led Honor Guard performed June 23, 2018. 

The members of the team were selected after submitting an application expressing why they would be interested.  

The members selected began training for their first performance a little over a month before with Idaho Department of Corrections Honor Guard member Larissa Pfeifer. 

Training began with basic facing movements and marching and moved on to flag etiquette.  

The ladies trained at least twice a week up until just before the ceremony when training was conducted daily. 

Training was also assisted in the evenings by Sgt. Waldram and Sgt. Sterner. 

Several of the ladies on the team expressed that this was "An Honor" to participate and show respect for the flag and the veterans present at the ceremony.
