Future officers fold garrison flag

It took 25 soldiers to lower and fold the national colors flown over Fort Benning on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day. The garrison flag is the largest-sized national flag the Army flies. It is used on federal holidays and special occasions. The soldiers folding the colors are all candidates at Fort Benning’s Officer Candidate School, one of only three U.S. Army officer commissioning sources.
