    Senior Airman Suchi Xiong who is part of the base’s honor guard team secures the U.S. Flag during a Presidents Day retreat ceremony at Al Udeid Air Base, Qatar, Feb. 17, 2014. In 1951, the desire for a more generalized recognition of Presidential achievements surfaced and collided with a movement to standardize the observance of certain holidays on Mondays, which would later come to be known as the “Uniform Monday Holiday Act”. Contrary to popular belief, the act neither combined the birthday celebrations for Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln nor actually changed the holiday’s official name to Presidents Day. Xiong is deployed from Joint Base Andrews, Md., and hails from Fresno City, Calif. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Jared Trimarchi)
