The Union High School Air Force Junior ROTC has been selected to represent Oklahoma in the January 21st Presidential Inaugural Parade.
Union officials say their participation hinges on the AFJROTC's ability to raise $40,000 for transportation, food, and lodging by the time they leave for Washington D.C. on January 17.
Four years ago a different group of Union AFJROTC cadets marched in the parade celebrating the historic first inauguration of President Barack Obama. Union's AFJROTC was then, and will be again this year, the only high school ROTC unit to march in the parade.
The group's booster club is accepting donations to send the cadets on this once-in-a-lifetime trip, made payable to:
Union AFJROTC Booster Club
Union High School 9th Grade Center
7616 S. Garnett
Broken Arrow, Ok. 74012
