Color Guard
The Color Guard is among the most prestigious teams on campus. This team can be seen at events such as football games, basketball games, community events, and other special events. These cadets are held to a higher standard of excellence than other cadets. The Color Guard varies in size with usually at least four cadets. It is made up of the two color guards and a various number of color bearers. The cadet who bears the national color commands the whole Color Guard. This cadet gives the commands that are necessary in moving the Color Guard and rendering of honors. All other color bearers are positioned to the left of the national color bearer.
