The Honor Guard is a team that focuses primarily on the performance of Sabers. This team is academically oriented entirely. The only major requirement for being on the team is the earning and maintaining an "A" average (3.5 GPA). The duties of the Honor Guard are to prepare the way for the Color Guard or another unit/group to which honor is due. This is done, typically, by the formation of an archway canal to which the unit/group can go through. Unlike the other teams available in the JROTC program, the Honor Guard has no competitive nature or style and in such does not attend or compete in any competitions that the Color Guard or Drill Team may attend. The Honor Guard Commander is usually the Battalion Commander or the Battalion Deputy Commander, but is designated by the AI/SAI every year. If you are interested in becoming a member of the Honor Guard you need to seek instructions for the AI.
