MCS Color Guard at Massing of the Colors

Millington Composite Squadron's Color Guard represented the Civil Air Patrol at this year's Massing of the Colors, which was held last weekend at Church of the Holy Communion in Memphis.

The annual event celebrates service to our country and gives an opportunity for all military branches and service organizations to show their pride and look their best.  According to the Military Order of the World Wars:

The Massing of the Colors is a patriotic ceremony to rededicate our faith in the colors of the United States and to present our support to those Colors and of the Servicemen and women those Colors represent. It combines the colors and color guards of Active and Reserve Component military units, veterans’ organizations, civic and patriotic organizations.

The main speaker for the event was Rear Admiral Earl Gay, Commander of the US Navy Recruiting Command in Millington.  Thanks to everyone from the Color Guard as well as family members and others who came to show their support.
