ROTC STUDENTS JOIN THE DAR IN RECOGNIZING NATIONAL DEFENSE MONTH

POTTSTOWN SCHOOL DISTRICT

Recently, cadets from the Pottstown High School Air Force Junior ROTC program, under the direction of Sgt. Alex Bolar, presented a flag folding ceremony at the Mahanatawny Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.  Cadets participating in the program were Greg Pearson, Andrew Strauss, Nathan Fuerman, Chris Kopack, Justin Strauss, and Angelina Schaff. 

The cadets explained the symbolism behind each of the elements in the flag folding ceremony.  Head of the DAR Chapter Mrs. Marlene Armato said, “We are privileged to have the honor guard as our program.  The folding ceremony was informational, emotional, and inspiring to our members.  The program was performed with precision.  The members of the honor guard embody the qualities that we wish for in the young citizens of our country.”

Sgt. Bolar, a veteran of many years in military service, observed, “Today’s ceremony was performed with the highest quality of precision and military decorum that I have had the opportunity to be involved with.”
