Fairfax County: Recognizing Enlisted High School Seniors

Fairfax County: Recognizing Enlisted High School Seniors

Our Community Salutes of Northern Virginia holds its fifth Annual Enlistee Recognition Ceremony on Thursday, June 11, at George Mason University’s Fairfax campus.

The Northern Virginia Chapter of Our Community Salutes honors high school seniors from Fairfax, Prince William and Loudoun counties for their decision to serve in the U.S. Armed Forces following graduation.

Local citizens, elected officials, officers and senior enlisted personnel will be in attendance at the ceremony to be the first to say “thank you” to these high school seniors for their decision to serve our country.

NBC4 news anchor Aaron Gilchrist will emcee the ceremony.

Our Community Salutes (OCS) was created in 2009 by Dr. Kenneth E. Hartman to recognize and honor high school seniors (and their parents/guardians) who plan to enlist into the military immediately after high school graduation.

The ceremony will take place at 6:30 p.m. in Dewberry Hall located in the Johnson Center and is open to the public.
