WHY SHOULD YOU JOIN?
If you want to be really active on a team, color guard is the team to be on! Color guard participates in at least one event every month which makes us one of the busiest teams in the unit. Cadets on color guard earn service hours for promotions very easily. On color guard, cadets learn rifle drill which you need to know in order to promote to a C/PO3. Most NS-1s on color guard are able to promote faster than non-color guard cadets because they practice rifle drill every practice. There is a color guard ribbon which you earn after three events and a cord you earn for being in good standing with the team and doing five events.
Color guard is also the only team in the unit that has placed multiple times at field meets and color guard competitions. Most recently(2/16/19), the varsity color guard went to Tampa to compete and took second place. After the competition, they were treated to Olive Garden by the NSI. The color guard is always complimented on how awesome we look in our uniforms, as well as how well we represent our unit and school.
Color guard normally practices two times a week on Mondays and Tuesdays, and usually last from 1415-1500 (2:15-3:00). Practices are run by the team commander with help from other experienced color guard members.
