Post Color Guard

 

The Post Senior Color Guard has a long history of excellence. The Post 91 Senior Color Guard has earned multiple Department of New Jersey 1st Place finishes dating back to at least 1985.

Most notably there were 5 years of consecutive Department of New Jersey wins by the Post 91 Senior Color Guard (2009-2013).

A new streak started in 2016 as the Post 91 Senior Color Guard earned 1st place and again earned a 1st place finish in 2017.
