The JROTC cadets at JMHS/MCTC have been honored by an invitation to march in the D-Day Memorial Parade to commemorate the 71st Anniversary of the Allied Landings in Normandy France and the Liberation of Europe. The theme of the D-Day Memorial Parade is "remembering our past and celebrating our future." The purpose of the parade is to honor and pay respect to the WWII survivors, our veterans, active duty military and their families. The parade takes place each year in Sainte Mere Eglise in Normandy, France on the Anniversary of D-Day. An invitation to this parade is a great honor, and our cadets will not only be representing our school, but they will also be representing our state. A huge thanks goes out to Colonel Womack and Master Sergeant Wiley for their dedication to their students. This is an amazing opportunity and achievement for our cadets. We would also like to thank the community for their tremendous support of this event and the JROTC program. Make us proud Mavericks!
