Honorary Commanders Alumni Association is extending an invite to members of the American Legion Post 29 to join us for this FREE event on Monday, August 30.

When we hear slogans such as; “Aim-High, Fly-Fight-Win”, “Forged by the Sea”, “Army Strong”, and “The Few, The Proud, The Marines”, we often think of our young airmen, sailors and soldiers who enlist and take the oath right out of high school to train for battle and defend our nation. These are the men and women who make up the enlisted ranks of our Armed Forces.

There is another rank that we hear so little about and those are the men and women of the Armed Forces who make up our officer ranks. Those who have not only sworn to protect and defend but also are committed to looking after the mental, physical, spiritual and legal rights of all those who stand beside them. They make up the Medical Service Corps, the Judge Advocate General (JAG), and Chaplain Corps of our United States Military.

Please join us as we hear from a few who joined the ranks of the officer corps who will discuss their journey and why they chose the military to practice their professions.

Lieutenant Colonel Ortiz, USAF – Chaplain Ortiz is an Active Guard Reserve Wing Chaplain attached to the 94th Airlift Wing, Dobbins Air Reserve Base. He also serves as the 22nd Air Force NAF senior chaplain. He advises leadership on spiritual, ethical and morale issues within the Airlift Wing.

On the civilian side he is the newly appointed District Attorney for the newly created Columbia County Judicial Circuit. He is the former United States Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia.
Commander William Roy – CDR Roy commissioned as a Commander in the US Navy in April 2019. After completing the Officer Development School where he served as a Division Officer and Awarded the Thomas Eadie Award for highest academic and military training average, he served as General Medical Officer for the Marine Wing Support Squadron 471 Detachment Alpha until he reported November 2020 to Naval Aerospace Medicine Institute Pensacola, FL for Flight Surgery Training.
