WEST POINT, MOTHER OF ARMY MEN © National Geographic Society Finlay Photograph by Edwin L. Wisherd \EST POINTERS HOIST THE COLORS SMARTLY TO TIE CARRY Old Glory marches side by side with the Academy banner. At the command "Order Colors," each bearer removes the staff butt from the belt socket and rests it on the ground near the right toe. These men won positions in the Color Guard because of their height, neatness, and military bearing. In gusty winds they find the flags hard to manage. The same group officiates throughout the academic year. Cadets in full dress line up beyond, before Central Barracks, for Sunday parade.
