Color Guard Academy

Alabama Wing Color Guard Academy


The Color Guard Academy's mission is to prepare cadets to serve on the Color Guard to present the Nation's Colors while molding individual character and team development and represent the Civil Air Patrol. It is our mission to meet the Cadet Core Values and uphold the standards befitting all Civil Air Patrol Cadets. The vision of the Color Guard Academy is to train cadets on the finer points of Air Force-style drill and ceremony, impart timeless values of patriotism, community service, and personal honor. Through discipline, loyalty, and ethical conduct, the Color Guard will serve as an example for Civil Air Patrol Corps of Cadets and will exemplify traits of selfless service and honor. In the spirit of those cadets, past and present, who have dedicated their lives for the things we cherish, the ALWG CGA will proudly carry the colors - To Honor with Respect.
