GF is trying to figure out who’s the military aid/escort for George Bush 43. He has been by his side all week. Did an exhaustive google search but got nothing. Anyone know?

Appeared to be a 2 star General.

I will admit that I have never seen scrambled eggs go all the way to the back before.

There are A LOT of 2-star generals.

Likely someone running a staff in the DC area, as the DC Military component is in charge of Presidential funerals.

As in a 2-star in charge of the old guard unit?

There are only a few hundred general officers of any grade.

Yeah, that's a lot.

There are more Admirals than ships, more Generals than Division, etc.

Quick Google shows me there are 114 2-stars in the Army.

The guy in charge of the Old Guard would be a good bet.

I believe the person you are referring to is Major General Michael Howard, the Commanding General of the Military District of Washington.

I thought he looked familiar. He was at JBER while I was living in Anchorage.

If you are referring to USMC Captain Brye French, he graduated from the same HS as my 2 sons.
