Texas Lone Star Chapter

Korean War Veterans

 

The Color Guard

The Chapter Color Guard was one of the first priorities when the Chapter was formed. Henry Martinez, our immediate-past Color Guard Commander, served from 2000 thru 2011. On his watch he provided strong leadership and dedication which resulted in the Color Guard being recognized as the Class A unit that it is. Don Napp became Color Guard Commander in 2012 also serving with strong leadership and dedication resulting in the Color Guard continuing to be recognized as a Class A unit. Various events and activities we have participated in over the years , as well as those we still participate in as requested are listed below: (Partial listing)
