The American Legion
Synepuxent Post 166
The Color Guard is one of the uniformed groups in the Legion and serve as the American Legion's "display cases", so to speak. At Parades, Funerals and special events, they advertise the Legion's size, scope and substance to the public at large; they are one of the finest opportunities for post public realtions. They afford those involved a sence of accomplishment, and a great deal of satisfaction and enjoyment.
