Unlike the Honor Guard who are the most visible ambassadors and representatives of the highest standards of the Civil Air Patrol, the Wesley Chapel Cadet Squadron Color Guard is a Specialized Team assigned to the protection of the National Ensign and CAP Organizational colors of the Wesley Chapel Cadet Squadron. 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.
Being assigned to the Squadron's Color Guard is considered an honor, and those Cadets are held to the highest of standards since they represent our Squadron's Mission and Core Values. Our Unit's Color Guard is tasked with representing our unit in all but not limited to the following: Unit/Group Formal Inspections, Change of Command Ceremonies, Pass in Reviews, Awards Banquets, Parades, Military Honors, Funerals, Flag Inaugurations, and any other formal event where the Squadron is being represented and a presentation of Colors is requested.
This prestigious Honor is usually assigned to 4-6 cadets in our Squadron.
*These Cadets are identified in our unit by the wearing of the Red/White Shoulder Cord.
