The Team Coast Guard Flotilla 12-4 Color Guard:
Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 12-4 Color Guard Drill and Ceremonies Manual:
Flotilla 12-4 has developed a Drill and Ceremonies Manual for use by its Color Guard. It is provided here to assist our members, and any other group, to develop marching, parade and Color Guardsman skills. Note: This is a large file and will take a long time to load, sorry for the inconvenience.
The Flotilla 12-4 Color Guard performs its services in a variety of settings. Los Angeles sports fans may have seen the Color Guard at events such as LA Clippers' basketball games. They also participate in ceremonies such as memorial services and burials at sea. Our Color Guard has received national attention and has been featured in a number of Auxiliary publications. The Flotilla 12-4 Color Guard is dedicated to achieving, maintaining and upholding the standards set by the U.S. Coast Guard Ceremonial Honor Guard.

US Coast Guard Silent Drill Team:
|A good color guard and honor guard inspires us to feel pride for our country, and our organization. Some Guards go beyond this, though, these are the Silent Drill Teams. So precise in their timing and movements, their hours of disciplined practice create a unit that acts as one - with no verbal commands or cues given. To the right, watch a video of the US Coast Guard's own Silent Drill Team (large file may take time to buffer - click here to launch in external player):|
Here are some examples of press we have received for the Flotilla's Color Guard activities:

U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Honor Guardsman’s Creed:
I am a U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Honor Guardsman.
I will proudly defend my country and stand beside my Crewmates.
In the face of disquieting or adverse elements
I will maintain poise on and off the parade field.
I will execute my tasks to the highest attainable standards and
Accept nothing less than perfection.
I will honor all Coast Guard and Auxiliary men and women
Both living and dead.
I will respect the Honor Guard mission
And my seniors.
I will devote my utmost effort to this sacred duty.
By wearing this rope, I have accepted a commitment to excellence as a way of life.
