Veterans Day 2017
Alice Johnson LOTC Cadets raised the American Flag on November 9, 2017 for the San Jacinto College North Annual Veterans Day Ceremony. They were able to meet and speak with Rear Admiral (Retired) Robert Greene who was the guest speaker. The cadets lowered the flag at the end of the ceremony, folded, and presented it to a veteran who was retiring from Veterans Services at San Jacinto College. There were two days of celebrating veterans for the cadets. Today, November 10th, they celebrated their teachers by designing and purchasing veterans t-shirts, making a Wall of Honor, serving them lunch, and other patriotic gifts. Cadet/Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Turcios stated, "We are celebrating our veterans for all the time they have given to our country, because freedom is not free."
