JROTC Visits Roundstone Elementary

By: Laney Bryant

On October 23, 2014 the JROTC came to Roundstone Elementary School. There were different stations set up for fifth graders to participate in.  One station was the American Flag trivia game. There was a flag and rifle station. Also there was a flag folding station and we got to fold a flag. We went to a flag rising station and learned about rising flags, there we also learned some of the commands they use in JROTC. The JROTC inspired kids to join JROTC when they entered high school, including myself. At a station we got to pretend we were the Color Guard and hold the American and state flags. Another station showed us how follow the commands in Color Guard. Many JROTC members were very helpful and answered a lot of questions. At the end of all the stations the Color Guard preformed for us. They did great! The 5th grade was very happy that the Color Guard came to Roudstone! Thank you to all the JROTC members who came.
