Raider Brigade Twilight Parade Celebrates Another Great Year of JROTC

June 12, 2019

General Joseph L. Votel '76 was the guest speaker and reviewing officer at the Raider Brigade Twilight Parade on May 15. General Votel retired recently from his position as CENTCOM Commander. He served in the military for nearly 40 years.

"Having the honor of General Votel speak to the Corps of Cadets is an occasion which enhances the storied history of JROTC at Cretin-Derham Hall," said SGM David Berrisford. "General Votel served our nation with honor, integrity, courage, and humility. His message to the cadets was clear and spot on. We can’t thank him enough for honoring us with his time and wisdom."
