UNITED STATES MARINE CORP (COLOR GUARD)

Details

Community and civic organizations may request ceremonial support from the Marine Corps for participation in appropriate events. The Color Guard is a four-member formation – consisting of the senior Marine and Color Sergeant carrying the National Colors, a Marine carrying the Marine Corps Colors, and two rifle bearers. The Color Guard is responsible for rendering appropriate military honors. This traditional formation adds dignity to any military-related activity, parade, or civic event by showing respect to our Nation and those who have served.
