Our Community Salutes (OCS) is a national, non-profit organization helping communities recognize, honor and support high school seniors who plan to enlist into the U.S. Armed Services after graduation.
The program is looking for guest speakers who may be interested in participating in future OCS programs. They are looking for speakers who have served in the U.S. military and retired or separated at paygrades E-8 or higher. For further information, please refer to their website, www.ourcommunitysalutes.org

This is a great opportunity for those who are interested in working with our young people who have expressed an interest in serving in the Armed Forces. According to NCOA’s President Vincent Patton, “I have been a volunteer for this program for a few years and find it wonderfully rewarding!”
