Many armies used flags to identify a formation or group of soldiers. During a battle, flags were used to identify the location of these groups.  These flags were treated with reverence as they represented the traditions and honor of the unit.  To protect these flags, a smaller detachment of experienced soldiers would be honored to protect the colors of the unit.

Being assigned to the color guard is considered an honor due to the fact that these individuals present and carry the symbols of their unit and country.  The USNSCC-Columbus Squadron is available to perform Color/Honor Guard services at your special event.

We have performed Color Guard at many events including:

  • Navy Ball – Columbus, Ohio
  • Naval Reserve Columbus, Ohio – Change of Command
  • New Wing dedication at Mott’s Military Museum
  • Navy League of Central Ohio Annual meeting
  • Opening of the Santa Maria ship in Columbus, Ohio
  • Arrival of the USS George H.W. Bush (CVN-77)
  • Numerous Military Retirement Ceremonies
