“Military Doctors, Lawyers & Preachers”
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.
