Thank you note from James Clemens HS JROTC

We received the following thank you note from Col. Courtney Taylor for the flags (American, Alabama, and Army) and accessories we gave to the James Clemens High School JROTC program recently:


Vice Commander Burch and I went to James Clemens to make the presentation to the cadets and Col. Taylor last Wednesday. Having been a JROTC cadet myself, it meant a lot to me to have the opportunity to give back to a program that had so much influence at a critical point in my life. My JROTC instructors were the most influential teachers I had in High School. I'm sure that many JROTC alumni can say the same.

It was an honor to see young Americans excited to have Old Glory presented to them, to join them in the Pledge of Allegiance, and to hear them recite the Army JROTC Creed.

For God and Country,

Jeremy B. Blevins
Commander
