The Royal Guard is a special honor guard in the Hawaii Air National Guard where select members perform ceremonial duties at various events though-out the year. The Royal Guard was originally a unit of military palace guards in the Kingdom of Hawaii before it was overthrown in 1893. They where reestablished on November 16, 1963 marking beloved 19th century monarch King Kalakauka’s birthday celebration. Members of the unit go to great lengths to maintain period-correct uniforms, even refurbishing original helmets all on volunteer hours, and use the hawaiian language to call commands during their drill and ceremony.
