Petty Officer 3rd Class Austin Reed is the point man on the U.S. Navy Ceremonial Guard at Joint Base Anacostia-Bolling in Washington, D.C. He leads the drill team’s four- and nine-person ceremonial formations, but it wasn’t always easy for him. Reed began his time at the ceremonial guard as the underdog. Discouraged but determined, he fought his way to the top and is now unstoppable.
