The color guard renders honors when the national anthem is played or sung, when passing in review during a parade, or in certain other circumstances. In these cases, the unit and departmental flags salute by dipping (leaning the flag forward). However, with the exception of a response to a naval salute, the United States national flag renders no salute. This is enshrined in the United States Flag Code and U.S. law.
This honors detail is made up of a group of retired veterans who feel it is their sacred duty to provide military honors to deceased veterans in the area. They also provide presentation of colors at patriotic events and now for the
North Georgia Highlands Seafood Festival.
