The KU NROTC Color Guard carries the national ensign and our military service flags. The Color Guard represents the KU NROTC Unit and the United States Navy and Marine Corps at university and military events and ceremonies. Our Color Guards operate in a sharp, disciplined, and military manner to continue the tradition of excellence our organization demands. Color Guard teaches midshipmen proper respect and Esprit de Corps for our country and for military service. Those with exceptional ability have the opportunity to be selected to represent the Unit in special events, such as performing at nationally televised college sporting events and competitive regional drill meets.
