HOOAH to Cadets Alex Jordan, Nick Jordan, Dylan Petropoulos, Paola Hernandez, Brian Foley, James Mannette, Zack Willson, and Hunter Anderson who assisted with The Summit Project event today (http://thesummitproject.org).
Cadets donated their first full day of vacation, got up early, and carrried stones to keep alive the memory of the fallen or carried the colors to proclaim their pride for our nation and armed forces. The outpouring of support for these cadets and the fallen was amazing; pedestrians stopping to take photos and clapping, tourists stopping to ask questions, horns honking, and cries of ‘HOOAH” from open windows. Cpl Ouk took some good shots — provided below.
You honored the fallen and kept them alive. They thank you…their families thank you…and I thank you. You made me proud.LT Paul Constantine MacDowell
