Flag Detail

This week's Corps Top Shot comes from Sgt. Cory Tepfenhart.

"The event was SkillsUSA's 48th annual National Leadership and Skills Conference, a showcase of career and technical education students from high school and college. The 9th Marine Corps District's Color guard was presenting the colors in front of an audience of more than 15,000 people. The event had just kicked off, and the color guard had just done their counter-march when I shot the photo. They were getting ready to step off as the national anthem had just finished. I chose to go B&W on this photo because of the lighting and the composition of the Marines."


Cpl. Daniel Harkins, Sgt. Nathan Brewer, Sgt. Zachary Baethke and Sgt. Eric Best with the 9th Marine Corps District color guard carry the colors before a crowd of thousands of high school and college students during the SkillsUSA awards ceremony, June 27.
