Veterans to be Honored at Moberly Area Community College Ceremony
Moberly Area Community College will honor Veterans at a ceremony at 9 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 11, 2013 on the front lawn of the MACC campus.
The ceremony will include the presentation of the colors, patriotic music, a salute by the Moberly High School Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps (JROTC), and a message from Lieutenant Colonel (LTC) Kurt Dulle.
LTC Dulle is a Jefferson City native and a Veteran with 26 years of service. He has served as MHS JROTC Senior Army Instructor since October. Prior to his retirement from active military service, LTC Dulle was commissioned as a Regular Army Armor Second Lieutenant in 1989 and graduated from Lincoln University in 1990 as a Distinguished Military Graduate, receiving his bachelor's degree in history. In 2007 he received his master's degree in National Security Studies from Naval Post Graduate School. He deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom three times, and twice to Bosnia. He has been stationed in multiple locations across the United States and three times in Germany.
The JROTC program, which began in August at MHS, is the largest youth development program of the U.S. Department of Defense.
"JROTC is not meant to be a recruiting tool, but it is meant to develop citizenship, character, and leadership in the MHS Student Cadets while fostering partnerships with the community and educational institutions like MACC," Lt. Col. Dulle said.
A special invitation is extended to local Veterans associations as well as active duty guard or reserve personnel to gather after the ceremony in the MACC Auditorium for a light breakfast. The service is open to the public.
