Several hundred people attended the annual Memorial Day Observance at Carolina Trace. The program included a flag ceremony conducted by Brigadier General Walt Hersman, USAF (Ret); and LTC Frank Brown, USA (Ret); Invocation by Colonel Jerry Merritt, USAF (Ret); beautiful renditions of patriotic music by Bill Gross, Walt Doelp and the Get Happy Chorus; an inspiring talk by LTC Mark Almond, ARNG; and featured a special flag program, “Remembering Heroes, Then and Now”. Individuals recognized special service members in their lives with an individualized certificate attached to a flag. These were provided by the Sanford Satellite of the Sandhills Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America.

JROTC Annual Awards Ceremony

The Order of Daedalians was presented by Brigadier General Walt Hersman (United States Air Force, Retired). The Order of Daedalians is a fraternity of commissioned military pilots from all military services. It is named after the legendary figure, Daedalus, and was organized by the World War I commissioned military pilots who sought to perpetuate the spirit of patriotism, love of country and those high ideals of self-sacrifice which place service to the nation above personal safety and position. This award is offered to encourage the development of these traits in Junior ROTC Cadets, and to interest them in Military Careers.
Two Sandhills Chapter awards were presented by Colonel Ed Baisden (US Army, Retired), Co-Leader of the Satellite Chapter.
