The Jewish War Veterans Copper State Post 619 will host a Zoom presentation by Master Sergeant Fred Driver of the Junior ROTC program at Hamilton High School Feb. 20.

Since 2003, Driver has been teaching aerospace science and leading the Junior ROTC program there, including honor guards, honorary graduates, and until recently, the “Adopt a Highway” program, when a lack of funding caused issues.

Post 619 has come to the aid of the ROTC program in years past. When the program lacked funds to procure drill rifles, it purchased several to ensure our drill team could compete in an upcoming event.

When the Air Force authorized battle uniforms for cadets, they didn’t authorize additional funding for boots, so Post 619 purchased 15 pairs of boots for the unit.

Driver will discuss what the Junior ROTC program is and isn’t, including their mission statement and national and community responsibilities.

He will also discuss the Jewish War Veterans tie-in and JROTC support for funerals, graduation escorts, honor guards, speaking engagements and the former Adopt A Highway program.

The virtual meeting starts at 10 a.m. Feb. 20 and the public is welcome to join. 00AM.  Everyone is welcome to attend by signing into Zoom.

The post is looking forward to resuming in person meetings in Sun Lakes once it is safe and in the meantime supports many nonprofits that help veterans.
