BANGOR — A day of honor and respect for all past and current military service members commenced with the annual Veterans Day parade in Bangor.
The Hermon Hawk Army JROTC Battalion united as one to honor the men and women who have served our country. Marching in front of hundreds of supportive spectators, it was evident that the respect for the military was unwavering and all-inclusive.
Students in the JROTC program are taught leadership skills through military values and are given many opportunities to serve the community. As professional leaders throughout the entirety of the parade, cadets displayed the selfless service and duty they have been taught to uphold. “The Veterans Day parade reflected the heroes of our past and showed a bright example of the ones to come,” remarked third year cadet Kenyan Robinson.
The battalion looks forward to returning next year to again march among dozens of organizations and veterans from across the state to celebrate outstanding military service.
