I would like to mention the NJROTC of Picayune Memorial High School presented the colors at the Army Field Band concert last Thursday night.

There is nothing like an auditorium filled with the voices of more than 600 people singing our national anthem. It brought chills of pride to my arms. I know it did to others as well.

“The concert was inspratioinal; especially when the National Anthem was played. I have never heard such a joyous display of patriotism in all my military years, when the whole building joined in and sang proudly our National Anthem.,” said Chief Mark E. Thorman, USN Ret.
