4/29/2013


TUSKEGEE, Ala. (April 29, 2013) — Tuskegee University Army ROTC cadets were recognized for their achievements April 24 during a ceremony in Gen. Daniel “Chappie” James Museum. The cadets were also given awards from various local veterans groups chapters. Lt. Col. Robbie J. Cross, Army ROTC commander, said the event was to recognize the students' service, athletic and academic achievements.

“It’s important to acknowledge outstanding performance. Education is so important,” Cross said.

Jesse Brock from the Military Order of World Wars in Columbus, Ga., left the cadets with some parting words as the ceremony ended.

“Integrity, integrity, integrity,” Brock said. “Don’t ever compromise it.”
