In addition to drilling and training, cadets are also involved in performing community
service and conducting color guard and honor guard ceremonies. In the military, the
color guard is a small number of soldiers (four to five) charged with protecting
the flag and performing flag-raising or flag-lowering ceremonies.
AIRPAC Squadron’s Color Guard proudly presents colors for many parades, ceremonies,
graduations, services, and even funerals throughout the year. The team is proud
to add an extra sense of patriotism and honor to local events.

In addition to performing color guard and honor guard duties, on occasion AIRPAC
plays host to visiting dignitaries. During those visits, AIRPAC often provides the
VIP the opportunity to do what is called, ‘trooping the line’. Trooping the line
gives a VIP the opportunity to inspect and question the cadets and gives each cadet
a little special time with the VIP.
Forming up for U.S. Congressman Wally Herger, AIRPAC Cadets anxiously await inspection
and their opportunity to shine.
