    The Veterans in School Resource Committee (VSRC) of the Howard County Commission for Veterans and Military Families has developed a standard format presentation, that when followed, will provide high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools students a concise yet consistent, message about Veterans, Veterans Day, Memorial Day, flag etiquette and more.
    Our opening (pilot) presentation is scheduled for November 10, 2017 at Howard High School. In order to meet this and follow on school requests, as we move forward with this program, the VSRC is compiling a list of active volunteer Veterans who are qualified to serve as presenters. The presentations are designed to be 30-45 minutes in duration, given on the school property. Volunteers must be articulate, have good voice projection, exhibit military bearing and appearance, preferably have some public speaking experience and be willing to adhere to the attached agenda/program outline.
    Anyone interested in becoming a qualified Veteran School Presenter (VSP) please contact Ed Hall.

    Passing out Marine Corps League roses to increase awareness about our detachment.
    In 1778, during the War of Independence, the Marine Corps Rose was dedicated to those Marines who made the Ultimate Sacrifice for their country. This tradition was continued by the French during World War One when the Marines attacked the Germans in the trenches at Belleau Wood, Roses were planted by the grateful French people at the graves of the Fallen Marines. When and where ever you see Leaguers or Young Marines distributing these remembrances take and wear one proudly.
