On Wednesday, September 26 several Korean War Veterans visited Woodbury High School to talk with students enrolled in the school’s Air Force Junior ROTC program. Five members of the 287 Army Battalion, along with their wives and the widow of a battalion member, made the trip to Woodbury from around the country. The stop was part of the group’s annual reunions, which they have been holding since 1965.

During the visit, Veterans shared their experiences from their time in the Army and answered students’ questions. Students also had the opportunity to perform a flag folding presentation and demonstrate rifle choreography.

The Air Force Junior ROTC program at Woodbury High School is one of only five in the state. Through the program, students learn about leadership and community service. In addition, there are also several aerospace and astronomy classes offered through the program for students at Woodbury High School, or who live in District 833. Students enrolled in Air Force Junior ROTC courses are not required to enlist in the military.
