The Color Guard assumes the responsibility for the raising and lowering of the flag during the home University of Michigan football and basketball games. At least four AROTC members are needed for each home football game and one for each home basketball game. Color Guard members are admitted to the games free. Sign up for the game of your choice. They carry the National Flag, State Flag, and School Flag, with two Guards that carry Standard Military Drill Rifles. The Color Guard performs opening ceremonies at school sporting events, community organizations, musical activities, honor organizations, and participate in local parades.
