Established in 1931, the United States Navy Ceremonial Guard is the official Ceremonial Unit of the U.S. Navy and is based at Naval District Washington Anacostia Annex in Washington, D.C.. The Ceremonial Guard's primary mission is to represent the Navy in Presidential, Joint Armed Forces, Navy and public ceremonies in the Nation's Capital under the scrutiny of the highest ranking officials of the United States and foreign nations, including royalty.
With the recent passing of Karl Pearl (82'-86'), the President of the Guard Alumni Association. Please take a moment of silence to honor our fellow
Alumni and send prayers for his family.
A core group of committed Alumni have stepped up to facilitate an orderly transition to new leadership. To maintain continuity and reestablish the Alumni Association’s goals, the core group have appointed certain Alumni members to serve as a steering committee.
Please visit our Board Members page to view the appointed committee.
In the coming weeks, we will provide an update of Alumni Association organizational changes, as well as information on preliminary plans for an Alumni Association Reunion tentatively scheduled for next year.
We thank you for your patience and only hope we can live up to Mr. Pearl's leadership.
