Catholic Community salutes local graduating high school students

Our Community Salutes of San Antonio is proud to honor over 200 local graduating high school students choosing to enlist in the military directly after high school in the fifth annual dinner and recognition ceremony on Wednesday, May 18, at 5:30 p.m., at the University of the Incarnate Word McCombs Center Stanley and Sandra Rosenberg Sky Room. This is the only recognition many of these young men and women and their families receive for choosing military service in the United States Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force or Texas Army National Guard. The guest speaker is Major General (Ret) Angela Salinas, U.S. Marine Corps and current CEO of Girl Scouts of Southwest Texas. Salinas will address the honorees before each receives a certificate and a challenge coin. Richard “Monty” Gonzales, a high school counselor from Winston Churchill High School, will be honored with the Colin Powell Award for supporting military service opportunities for high school students. The event will also include a Community Support Fair featuring Blue Star Moms, the Red Cross, the USO, Operation Homefront and the University of the Incarnate Word. USAA is the presenting sponsor of this year’s event. For more information on this visit: and ‪#‎OCSinSA
