Color Guard

The Western Reserve Color Guard was founded in February on 1996 and has been lead enthusiastically by Commander John Franklin since. The Color Guard is made up of volunteers who dress in period costume and learn the protocol for presenting our Nations Colors.

The Color Guard serves more than 25 events annually. From Immigration and Naturalization cereomonies, local parades (Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day) to Grave Marking ceremonies, and commemorative events such as: Pearl Harbor Day, D-Day, Veterans Day, Fort Laurens events, etc. Our Color Guard has participated in events at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Cleveland City Hall, President Garfield's mansion, Fort Laurens, and countless cities, towns and communties across northeastern Ohio.

The WRSSAR Color Guard is always looking for new members. If you cannot afford to buy your own uniform, the Color Guard Fund can provide a uniform to you. You need not have any prior experience. Women and teens may also serve on the Color Guard. Make it a family event!
