Few sights produce more pride than that of the American Flag. This regard was especially prevalent in the football arena at Vista Grande High School on Thursday, May 20. The flag introduction marked the start of the 2021 Graduation Ceremony as everyone stood in patriotic tribute to the flag carried by the Marine Corps Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC) cadets. The American flag was carried with distinction by the unit’s Commanding Officer 1st Lieutenant Valdez. Equally impressive, in precision and regal, were cadets 2nd Lieutenant Swift carrying the Marine Corps flag, 2nd Lieutenant Jimenez carrying the left rifle, and 2nd Lieutenant Frazier carrying the right rifle. The Spartan JROTC cadets are instructed by Dr. Tyrone Hall, CWO-3 (ret) and GySgt Jesus Flores. For more information on the JROTC Program, visit www.cguhsd.org/vgJROTC.aspx.
