Last Meeting

At our last meeting, we welcomed LTC Michael DeBolt and Lieutenant Commander Cadet Katie Glessman from the Benson High Scholl JROTC. LTC DeBolt shared with us his appreciation for the many donations given toward the JROTC trip to Normandy, France for the 70th Anniversary Celebration of D-Day. While in France, the students partook in the parade, carrying the Nebraska flag and marched along Eisenhower Street. They were also able to tour France and take in some culture, including visits to the Louvre and Eiffel Tower. They visited Omaha and Utah Beaches. Cadet Glessman shared with us about this trip being the first plane ride for many of the students and some differences in culture.
