Color Guard

Dundalk High School’s NJROTC

MISSION STATEMENT:  “To instill in our cadets a sense of accomplishment by promoting patriotism, honor, self-discipline, and leadership, developing informed and valued citizens who have deep respect for self and others.”




Officer in Charge: C/CDR Behe

Assistant: C/CPO

Scheduled Meets:


Color Guard is one of the various teams associated with the drill team.  Consisting of four to six members, flags that are carried include our national colors, the Navy flag, the Maryland State flag, and the Dundalk High School flag along with two cadets carrying rifles on either side of the flags.  Every NJROTC must have a Color Guard to represent their units both in competition and in the community.  In addition to performing at drill meets, the team present colors for organizations around the community such as football events, community day parades, and serve as the introduction to most school events.

The Color Guard’s role is more ceremonial than that of the drill team.  It is the oldest and most traditional of all the drill teams and is highly respected in the community.  Practices are Monday-Thursdays unless otherwise indicated. Cadets who like working with small groups while drilling at the same time would be great for this team.
