The NSSAR Color Guard is reinstituting The SAR Colorguradsman magazine as an E-Magazine. The publication schedule is set for quarterly issues that will be distributed via email and be available on the committee webpage. Each issue will be published in a PDF format (Adobe Acrobat).
The plan is for The SAR Colorguardsman to contain articles of interest to the Color Guard including, but not limited to the following:
- Uniforms – history, where to get replicas made, etc
- “How To” Articles – establishing a color guard, drill manuals, handling weapons, etc
- Events – what should be expected of color guards, pictures and articles of color guard participation, etc
- Announcements – what upcoming events need color guard participation, etc
Deadlines are as follows:
October publication – September 30th deadline
January publication – December 31st deadline
April publication – March 31st deadline
July publication – June 30th deadline
Thus, the call is now going out for submissions for the first issue of the new SAR Colorguardsman emagazine. Entries should be emailed to me at both of the emails provided below my signature. Each submission should be sent in a DOC or RTF format (Microsoft Word) or similar format. Pictures should be sent in JPEG format.
I am also asking that you forward this email to your state’s color guard commander for dissemination amongst the color guard members.
