In remembrance of an outstanding comedian and American... RIP. Robin Williams starts his USO show a tad early for deployed troops and is interrupted by the "Retreat" ceremony. His recovery is priceless, very funny! Retreat is a daily ceremony held at all Army installations as the national flag is lowered at the end of the day.

    For those not in the know, the first part is called "To the Colors". The second part, when you salute is "Retreat". Generally speaking it is a really long, and a minor annoyance. And I promise you that most soldiers could beat Usain Bolt in a foot race if they think they're gonna be caught outside when it goes off.

    Oh Yes saw many a soldier take off running if they knew it was time for RETREAT, I think they would knock down old ladies and kids if they got in the way.
