The Color Guard trains extensively in the Air Force and CAP Manual of Arms/Colors. The Color Guard consists of a minimum of four cadets and is commanded by the Color Guard Commander, who carries the National Ensign and gives the necessary commands for movements and rendering honors during drill exercises or parade ceremonies.
The Cadets that are assigned to the Color Guard are held to the highest standards as they represent the Squadron's Mission and Core Values. It is considered an honor to be chosen for the Color Guard. Our Squadron's Color Guard is tasked with representing our unit at the following events: Change of Command Ceremonies, Awards Banquets, Color Guard Competitions, Parades and other formal events where the Squadron is requested to present the Colors.
This prestigious Honor is usually assigned to 4-6 cadets in the Squadron and you can identify who is in the Color Guard through the wearing of the White Shoulder Cord.
