Color Guard and Honor Guard

IMG 5841Thor Detachment is proud to have a Color Guard and an Honor Guard.  If requested, we will proudly provide a Guard Unit to support your event.
Some people may ask, "What is the difference between a Color Guard and an Honor Guard?"  
IMG 5887While both may look similar in appearance, and some of the duties they perform are the same, their purpose is different.  Colors, or flags, are often carried by both, but the primary purpose of the Color Guard is to present the National Colors at a presentation or ceremony. The Honor Guard may present the Colors, but their main purpose is to present a contingent to bear honors at ceremonies or funerals.

Guard Units are provided as a free service to the community.
