The enduring bond of the Price twin brothers filled the room with an overwhelming sense of joy, laughter, camaraderie and nostalgia as their journey and United States Air and Space Force careers flashed before their eyes. On Oct. 19th, 2023, the retirement ceremony of Tech. Sgt. Nicholas Price, Space Delta 4 talent management unit deployment manager, and Tech. Sgt. Brandon A. Price, 17th Test and Evaluation Squadron test director, held at Peterson Space Force Base, showcased the unique experiences the Price twins shared throughout their military careers. 

The Price brothers remained inseparable even throughout their military careers taking every opportunity to stay near each other so much so that Tech. Sgt. Nicholas Price playfully explained that when the brothers started dating, they would set an important boundary with their partners.

“We would make sure the ladies knew they came second, even our wives!” humorously expressed Tech. Sgt. Nicholas Price. “It is rare that a day goes by where we haven't spoken.” 

Throughout the ceremony, the room was aglow with infectious laughter, ignited by the Price brothers’ endless stream of jovial jokes.

“...Imagine growing up with your best friend from birth,” remarked Tech. Sgt. Nicholas Price. “As babies, we couldn’t stand to be away from each other and we knew nothing about the world, but we instinctively knew we didn’t want to experience it without each other.”

Two retiring twin brothers in the United States Space Force are extraordinary and serving together with parallel careers is a testament to their unwavering commitment to their brotherly bond. These brothers come from a bloodline that has served this nation for generations, so for the Price brothers it was only a matter of time before they would choose to follow the same path that had been laid out before them.
