LSU Chancellor's Day 2015 - Garrison Flag

Each spring the LSU Corps of Cadets raises a Garrison flag over the Parade ground - A massive flag, in preparation for Chancellor's Day. The Corps of Cadets assembles on the Parade Ground, and performs a ceremonial "pass and review" for the Chancellor and assorted guests. The flag is so massive that it takes about ten people to carry it.
This video highlights some of the landmarks of LSU. The Camponelli Bell Tower is a memorial to LSU Alumni who lost their lives fighting in World War I. The flag and concrete structure below it are known as the LSU War Memorial, dedicated to the LSU alumni who were killed, or missing in action.

On a personal note, this video is a series of "Firsts". Due to heavy (17mph) winds, I've tried to work in video stabilization. I think that might have dropped the visual quality a little bit, but it at least makes the video more watchable. Every now and then bigger gusts still have caused a jump or two in the footage.

The music is "National Emblem" by the United States Army Concert Band.

Thanks for watching!
