color guard

Recommended Posts

What's your opinion (polite, of course), or experience in forming a precision, well dressed, military style color guard in your troop. I formed one years ago in another troop and they really liiked sharp!

Back In the 80's the troop I served as SM formed a special flag ceremony team. We were more scout like in style than military. By that I mean we did not do a fancy march step march although they walked in unison. We had a scout calling commands and we followed proper flag ettiquette. They wore a complete current uniform with the only addition being a special neckerchief (no spats or gloves etc.)

 

To be involved you needed a complete uniform and you had to participate in a 4 hour program on flag ettiquette and basic presentation formats.

 

Once you participated in a set number of public ceremonies (I think it was 9) you got to keep the neckerchief.

Our crew will present the colors at the next council eagle scout dinner. We have tried to present the colors in a military fashion but I expect every scout will earn the ranger award before they learn to march in unison.
