Update – OCS Cadets train local middle school Color Guard


Wilson Focus School’s new Color Guard team.

The Omaha Composite Squadron’s efforts to help establish a Color Guard at Wilson Focus School have far exceeded all our expectations.  The School now has a full-time Color Guard, along with the ceremonial items necessary to accomplish their duties.

Below are some photos of the training provided by members of the Omaha Composite Squadron, who volunteered their own time, during school hours, to help polish the final details with the students from Wilson Focus School.


For several Weeks, Cadets from the Omaha Composite Squadron helped train the Students in all aspects of Color Guard duties, formations, customs and courtesies.


Congratulations to Wilson Focus School for their support and dedication in fostering respect towards our nation’s Flag, and helping the youth to study and appreciate the rights as well as the duties of citizenship.
