Guarding US Flag

Discussion in 'Other US Flag Etiquette' started by, May 11, 2008.

  1. Is it proper to guard the American Flag from the rear ?
    With a 9 man front, 5 flags & 4 riflemen, the front may
    be too large.
    Can we have two rows with the 5 flags in first row and
    4 riflemen in the second row, still guarding the US flag
    from the rear (within 3 paces) rather than beside the
    US flag ?
    I thought I had read somewhere that it would be proper,
    but I can't find anything on it now.
