The North Cobb High School Navy Jr. ROTC
Color Guard

Legionnaires Fred Gaines, Larry Hale, David Burdette, and Auxiliary member Nancy Burdette represented Post 304 on Tuesday evening, April 24, 2007, at the Navy Jr. ROTC Awards Ceremony at North Cobb High School in Kennesaw. American Legion Ribbons and Certificates were presented to two of the cadets for Military Excellence and Scholastic Excellence by Burdette and Gaines.

Here's a shot of the crowd on the left side of the room where the ceremony was conducted ...

... and here's the crowd on the right side of the room.

Presenters from the Sons of the American Revolution, Gaines and Burdette enjoy a chuckle before the start of the ceremony. Larry Hale was the photographer.

Here's an image of the "civilian" crowd that attended ...

... listening to retiring ROTC Commander Craig Smith addressing them ...

... and the cadets.

... American Legion Military Excellence Award to Cadet LCDR Michael Little.
The winner of The American Legion ROTC Scholastic Excellence Award was Cadet C/MCPO Chase Mizzell. Unfortunately, we were not able to get a photograph of Cadet Mizzell accepting the Award from Fred Gaines.
The entire ceremony was very impressive. Hopefully, we can involve more of our Legionnaires in future events such as this.
