Detachment Color Guard
The Color Guard (or Colour Guard) refers to a detachment of soldiers assigned to the protection of regimental colors. This duty is so prestigious that the color is generally carried by a young officer (Ensign), while experienced non-commissioned officers (Colour sergeants) are assigned to the protection of the flag. These NCOs, accompanied sometimes by warrant officers (as is the case in several countries), can be ceremonially armed with either sabres or rifles to protect the color. Color guards are generally dismounted, but there are also mounted color guard formations as well.
The Detachment is proud of the tradition and history of its Color Guard. Under the direction of Color Guard Leaders, Color Guard members endure heat, rain, and cold weather to proudly present the colors of the United States of America and the U.S. Marine Corps. They perform in parades, community activities, and Marine Corps Veteran funerals.
We are always looking for new members to train and prepare for upcoming events.
