CORPS Photos

The Kenosha Kingsmen, formed in 1956, was an all-male senior marching and maneuvering corps based in Kenosha, Wisconsin. They were sponsored by the Fraternal Order of Eagles Aerie 1055, Somers American Legion Post 552, and Junker-Ball VFW Post 1865.

The corps’ colors were black, red, and white.

Awards included the Wisconsin State VFW Championships, and fifth place in the 1969 American Legion National Championships, the last year the corps was known to have been active.

The Kingsmen held an annual contest, the Concourse of Champions, early in the marching season.
