A delicious dinner, prepared and served by the wonderful staff of the NC Strate University Club, followed the opening remarks.

The observance took place in the University Room of the NC State University Club, 4200 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh, NC 27606.
Colonel Herb Segal kicked off our Observance in a manner similar to when US Congressman Patrick McHenry recently called the House of Representatives to Order while serving as Speaker, by quoting General George Washington's invocation of June 8, 1783.
Colonel Bob Penney introduced the Cary High School NJROTC Color Guard and led the Pledge of Allegiance.
