How does the U.S. Air Force capture its mission of honor and selfless service in the modern era? Create its own rock band, of course.
That's how Air Force Honor Guard airmen became inspired to form Max Impact, a band whose original song "Stand" and music video were highlighted at the Annual Air and Space Conference and Technology Exposition at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center just outside of Washington, D.C., an Air Force release said.
" 'Stand' began as a request from a leader in the Honor Guard community who saw Max Impact's last video project 'Send Me.' He wanted to highlight his Airmen's selfless service, mission culture and inspire them to new heights. Drawing inspiration from the Honor Guard Charge, this exciting original composition tells the story of these highly-trained Air Force professionals and highlights their commitment and sacrifice," an official statement said.
