Since early history flags and banners have been used by armies in battle. They served several purposes in addition to being symbols of the unit. To protect the flags, a detachment of soldiers was assigned to carry and guard them.
Being a member of the WVA 48 Color Guard is considered an honor because these women present, carry and guard the symbols of our Country and our State.
