The Adjutant General of the Iowa National Guard, Maj. Gen. Ben Corell, and other senior leaders in the Iowa National Guard gathered with Soldiers and Airmen at the Camp Dodge Pool Pavilion in Johnston, Iowa, to conduct a command retreat May 26, 2022. In history, the bugle call sounded at sunset to alert sentries to begin their duties and send Soldiers to their quarters for the evening. Today, the ceremony remains as a tradition and has two distinct purposes: to mark the end of the duty day and pay respect to the U.S. flag.
