ALL MEMBERS OF THE HONOR GUARD ACADEMY MUST ARRIVE IN FULL UNIFORM. THERE WILL BE AN INSPECTION UPON ARRIVAL AT THE ACADEMY. Please read all instructions and follow them.
The Honor Guard Academy's objective is to provide leadership training
to cadets and adult members that will enable them to introduce
the Honor Guard Program within their unit, wing, and region.
The Honor Guard Program contributes to the Drug Demand Reduction Program, recruiting and retention through a highly visible public relations program,
as those members become Ambassadors for the Civil Air Patrol.
Cadets must be 13 years old by day 1.
Cadets will be trained by the United Sates Air Force Honor Guard in
three of the four elements of the Honor Guard:
Ceremonial/Demonstration (including rifle maneuvers)
and Funeral Element.
The fourth element, Drama, focuses on the Drug Demand Reduction Program
and students will receive instruction from the Senior Staff.
Senior Members that wish to serve as staff and become part of the Honor Guard family must complete the application procedures plus provide information on
their knowledge of the position for which they are applying.
Each staff member must be able to complete assigned duties
All staff members will be expected to perform multiple duties while at the Academy, and therefore, one staff member may hold several positions.
