ENLISTEE RECOGNITION CEREMONY - 2019
The 2019 Our Community Salutes High School Senior Recognition Ceremony was held on 29 May at the Cavaliers Country Club just north of Newark, Delaware.
This year there were over 75 enlistees from all branches of the services, twenty-seven of who were able to attend the reception, dinner and awards presentation accompanied by their parents, other family members and their recruiters.
Each enlistee received letters of appreciation signed by both Senators, Chris Coons and Tom Carper, and Representative Lisa Blunt-Rochester and a letter of commendation signed by the Chairmen of the State House and Senate Veterans Affairs Committees.
They were also presented with a traditional Challenge Coin.
Gary Dawson served as our master of ceremonies.
Our speakers were BG David Fleming, Assistant Adjutant General, Delaware National Guard, and Larence Kirby, Executive Director of the Delaware Veterans Affairs Committee.
