The JROTC program received a donation of $750 from LZ Rainelle, which is a non-profit veterans’ organization. “With the money we received, I plan to set up a trip and visit military bases so that I can reward the cadets that work the hardest. If we can’t do this then I hope to have a big cookout,” said Sgt. Long.
LZ Rainelle also has a Veteran’s Appreciation Day in July where they have a cookout and take the veterans on a bout tour of Summersville Lake. This year, they invited the JROTC members to tag along with them. “We hope to help out every year,” said member Mark Allen.
