The MER Honor Guard Academy's objective is to provide leadership training to cadets that will enable them to implement the Honor Guard Program within their individual wings and units. The Honor Guard Program contributes to both Civil Air Patrol and Middle East Region by providing a highly visible public relations program. It allows cadets, and seniors, to become Ambassadors for Civil Air Patrol and assist with both recruiting, retention and the Drug Demand Reduction Program. The MER HGA will provide training in 4 Honor Guard Elements; (1) The Color Guard and Colors Element, (2) The Ceremonial Element, (3) The Funeral Element, and (4) The Flag Element. There will also be training in two additional elements necessary for public relations and the DDR Program; (1) The DDR Element, (2) The Public Speaking Element.

New this year! Back by popular demand, there will advanced training flights and staff positions for cadets who have attended more than one year.

For 2015, MER HGA will use the same process as the other NCSAs. It will be available when all of the NCSA's are so please watch NCSA.com* for updates and the Instructions area of NCSAS.com* for how cadets and senior members apply for NCSAs. *this link will leave this .gov domain.
