After the singing of the Air Force Song, the Airmen remain standing at attention. At this time, we moved from the bleachers to the Retreat Pad to see Tyler for the first time since he flew out. This is a tradition that is known as "tapping out", which releases the Airmen to their visitors for the remainder of Base Leave. To "tap out" your Airman, you simply tap him or her on the shoulder. I don't recall who made it to Tyler first and tapped him out, but I do know that the hugs afterwards were some of the best I have ever experienced!

Before Tyler's base leave ended, we ate dinner at the Gateway Club on base. We were joined by Tyler's Great-Grandma Parrott and Uncle Steve as well for our meal. After eating we had to drop Tyler off at his dorm so that we could all get some sleep and prepare for tomorrow's graduation ceremony.
