The Natchitoches Central High School JROTC Veterans Day Program will be virtual this year due to COVID-19 restrictions.  The cadets are producing a Veterans Day video tribute, which will be available for viewing on the Friends of NCHS Facebook and on the Natchitoches Central High School Facebook on Nov. 10.

The tribute will include performances from the JROTC Drill Teams, cadets singing, reading poetry, video messages from Brigadier General Keith Waddell (The Adjutant General Louisiana Army National Guard), Command Sergeant Major Robert Stiefvater (State Command Sergeant Major Louisiana Army National Guard), and Secretary Joey Strickland (Secretary of the Louisiana Department of Veterans Affairs). The video will also include a Flag Folding Ceremony, POW/MIA Table Ceremony and Taps.
