Students from the U.S. Air Force Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) Detachment 442 at Missouri University of Science and Technology will serve as Color Guard at the St. Louis Rams football game at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis on Sunday, Nov. 1.
The Missouri S&T students, called the Blue Sabres, will carry the U.S. flag and other flags in order of their respective position in the chain of command during the pre-game ceremonies on Sunday, prior to the game’s noon start.
The St. Louis Rams will face the San Francisco 49ers, a rival in the NFC West division.
“The Blue Sabres is comprised of cadets who work hard to master the military drill and ceremonies required to perform a Color Guard,” says Maj. Benjamin Seabough, an assistant professor of aerospace studies at Missouri S&T and the group’s faculty advisor. “They represent this university and the United States Air Force with integrity and discipline and we’re very proud of the work they do.”
Detachment 442 is led by Lt. Col. William D. Bragg, professor of aerospace studies at S&T. The following students will be part of the Nov. 1 Color Guard:
- Jacob Bautista, a senior in aerospace engineering from Waynesville, Missouri
- David Crow, a sophomore in computer science from Kansas City, Missouri
- Samuel Cyr, a senior in aerospace engineering from St. Robert, Missouri
- Sawyer Scheer, a junior in physics from Hamilton, Ohio.
