On Saturday, September 24th, our Hawk Battalion Honor Guard went up to Titusville's Warbird Museum to support the fundraiser event hosted by "Life Recaptured", a nonprofit support organization. At the "Second Annual Life Recaptured Gala", Life Recaptured successfully raises awareness towards the fight against sex trafficking while also fundraising for the restoration of those impacted. Thank you to all of the organizations that assisted in making the formal event truly spectacular, and to our Honor Guard consisting of Deforest, Orlandi, Stevenson and Walter!
On Friday, September 16th, our Viera Hawk Battalion was able to host a halftime ceremony in honor of veterans, and first responders that lost their lives due to the 9/11 attacks. Honoring the veterans was our Hawk Battalion, all 103 cadets, with the color guard consisting of Adam Deforest, Maddison Orlandi, Brennon Curtis and Ian Stevenson. Some highlights of the ceremony was the Helicopter Fly Over as the game started, the support of the Brevard Fire Department in flying the American Flag above the field, the Veteran Participation during the football game’s halftime, the playing of Taps to honor fallen veterans and first responders, with a moment of silence afterwards. Thank you to everyone who participated in making this Veteran Ceremony truly remarkable and momentous!
