JROTC to Honor Service Members Lost During the War on Terrorism
Since the beginning of the War on Terrorism, over 6,500 United States service members have lost their lives. On Thursday, November 7, 2013, at 8 a.m., Pompano Beach High School will hold a special ceremony to honor these fallen heroes and the nation’s veterans.
During the ceremony, an American flag for each service member lost in action since the start of the War on Terrorism will be displayed. Each flag will have a personal profile of a fallen service member, including name, photograph (if available), hometown and date he or she died. The flags will be placed in rows and displayed on the Pompano Beach High campus through Veteran’s Day.
The ceremony will also include a special presentation to honor Broward Sheriff’s Office Deputy Daniel Rivera, who recently lost his life in a car accident. Guest speakers include community and school leaders.
The community is invited to attend the Fallen Heroes Ceremony. Pompano Beach High School is located at 600 NE 13th Avenue, Pompano Beach. For additional information, contact Lieutenant Colonel Greg Johnson at 754-322-2000.
