How NOT to Present the Colors

DrillMaster Honor Guard, Honor Guard Training, Instructional 0 Comments

The room was small and quite crowded for the graduation ceremony. Still, there is NO reason to present a rolled up American (or any other) flag- and badly rolled, I might add- at any ocassion. Ever.

Why do I post pictures like this? Education and training- and that’s it. This picture shows a lack of training and pointing out the mistake is not meant to tear down, but to educate. The more we can learn by others’ mistakes, the hopefully less mistakes we all will make. I love the uniforms, by the way.
