ROTC Color Guard
The UW Parkside Ranger Army ROTC Color Guard is a ceremonial unit within the ROTC program. Presenting the Colors is a military tradition dating back to the beginning of our country. The Color Guard presents the National Colors for events such as home sporting games, official ceremonies such as Veterans' Day and Parades, commencement ceremonies, and other special events.
The Color Guard is comprised of Cadet volunteers and they earn extra recognition and participation points for their efforts. Color Guard offers Cadets the opportunity to learn precision drill movements more thoroughly than through the regular Army ROTC curriculum.
