For the past five years, Ben Garland has had the privilege and honor of wearing what he describes as the two “best uniforms in the world”. On one, he bears the stars and stripes, portraying his unwavering devotion to serve our country. The other depicts the orange and blue, symbolizing the incredible hard work and dedication he has put in to fulfill his lifelong dream of playing for the Denver Broncos.
Ben Garland’s job is to guard.
He is an NFL offensive guard, fighting for the chance to serve and protect one of the finest quarterbacks in the NFL. More significantly though, he is a captain and a traditional guardsman for the Colorado Air National Guard, with a conspicuously more daunting task; to serve and protect our country.
