American Veterans Post 2006 designates a "Color Guard" as a unit that presents the colors at various public events such as parades, school activities, veteran functions, and patriotic programs. The color guard may be as simple as carrying the American, POW/MIA, and AMVET flags. Or it may consist of a full color guard unit that adds all of the military branch flags. A rifle escort is always included for the American flag. Flag precedence in both static displays and marching formations are in accordance with the regulations outlined in various AMVET and Military documents.
