Color Guard 


This elite group has the honor of presenting and posting the national and state colors at important school and community functions. Distinctive uniform items are worn (helmets, berets, shoulder cords, belts, and ascots). NOTE: Considerable effort is required to become a regular member of this group, but the honor more than compensates for the effort expended.

Rifle Team & Drill Team


A great deal of extra effort is required in these activities. CA-20017's drill teams command instant recognition and respect on the VHS campus. Here is a chance to polish the basic skills learned in the leadership laboratory. Afterschool practice, learning the manual of arms, extreme concentration, complete compliance with commands, extra care of the uniform, the desire for public performance and recognition, and individual desire will limit this activity to a small percentage of the unit.
