Event Description 

The vision of the ALWG Color Guard Academy is to train cadets on the finer points of the Air Force-style drill and ceremonies and impart timeless values of patriotism, community service, and personal honor. Through discipline, loyalty, and ethical conduct, the CG will serve as an example for the Civil Air Patrol Corps of Cadets and will exemplify the traits of selfless service and honor.
