The MHS Color Guard is involved in many events. The general idea of Color Guard is posting of the colors at the opening of an event (as beginners, mainly football games). Color Guard is made up of a team of four to six cadets (depending on the number of flags being raised). Two cadets stand at each flag pole and raise the flags according to directions given by their commander. As each cadet attends and completes an event, they earn event points. Once a cadet reaches a certain number of events, they are then allowed to test for a position on Honor Guard.

The MHS Honor Guard is the varsity color guard and is made up of the top twelve cadets on the Color Guard plus a bugler. Each cadet attends over sixty events during the year. Each Honor Guard Team consists of two riflemen and two to three flag bearers. This highly requested unit performs for a multitude of events with community and veteran organizations in Midland and across West Texas. Generally, the Honor Guard either presents or posts the Colors at events and meetings. To obtain membership on the Honor Guard requires many hours of practice and the ability to pass a written and performance based exam. Honor Guard members are held to a higher standard than the average cadet and must be proficient with the rifle manual of arms drill.

The Armed Drill team consists of a group of cadets focusing mainly on the art of handling and/or spinning 1903 Springfield rifles. To compete in competitions on the team, cadets must first go through training with the upper classmen and learn a series of "Stationary and moving Routines". They start out with beginner stationary drill and begin to work their way up depending on accuracy and performance skills. As the cadet proceeds through the Armed Drill program, he/she may reach the point to be allowed to compete on an advanced honor team. This up to a four man team performs unusual, extremely advanced, and difficult sequences in their drill competitions. Only cadets with the highest scores on the drill team can and will be allowed to perform such tasks. That being said, this is the ultimate position for Armed Drill.
