ROTC hosts luncheon to honor Vietnam veterans

by Hannah Lynn Robinson


James Madison University ROTC is hosting the 6th annual Vietnam War Commemoration Luncheon on Friday, February 14, from 10:45 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Veterans will enjoy food and hear guest speakers at the Festival Conference and Student Center on the JMU campus east of Interstate 81.

Vietnam veterans and their families are invited to hear keynote speaker Robert E. Leiendecker Lieutenant Colonel US Army (Retired).

Since becoming a senior ROTC unit, enrollment has soared from two students to over 200. The curriculum has also expanded to include 10 classes plus a leadership laboratory. Upon receiving their undergraduate degree, ROTC cadets are commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the United States Army.

If you are interested in covering the event or would like to conduct interviews, please contact me. I would be happy to connect you with event organizers and/or attendees.
