Honor Guard Commands
These commands are available in MP3 format for down load to give you an idea of how to call commands and to give trainees a way to practice on their own time by listening on a CD or something similar. The commands are given at approximately 75-80 beats per minute (BPM), a ceremonial cadence. I recorded my voice with the help of former USAF DJ Lynn Gray. I have also added some new commands to the list since working with Lynn back in 2010.
