Dozens of local teenagers and their parents got a message of encouragement and gratitude Wednesday evening from one of the Army’s most highly honored veterans, with the support of a variety of neighbors.


Here is a short (one-minute) video from USAF Airman Castillo, who was honored as an OCS high school enlistee at our 2019 OCS Ceremony in Delaware:

Our Community Salutes National has been honored to receive Fox Nation's Most Valuable Patriot Award which will be presented to the founder, Dr. Kenneth Hartman this November (date TBD). We're grateful for this recognition of the work performed by over 40 chapters of OCS cities across the nation and look forward to adding additional cities to recognize and salute the young men and women who enlist in the military directly upon graduation from high school.
