NOV. 25 – Trine’s Air Force ROTC program recently received a donation from the Hamilton American Legion Women's Auxiliary.

The Women’s Auxiliary presented a U.S. Air Force flag to Trine’s ROTC program on Nov. 17. The donation of the flag was accepted by two Trine senior cadets in the ROTC program, Mark Haydock, a senior mechanical engineering major from Fort Wayne, and Tanner Vannieuwenhoven, a senior civil engineering major from Pulaski, Wis.

The Women’s Auxiliary has continued to show its support of Trine’s ROTC organization as this is the second flag presented to the program. Last year, the program was presented with an American flag. These generous gifts help to assist the Air Force cadets when presenting the colors and practicing without the need to borrow equipment from the Air Force detachment.

“We are very thankful to the Hamilton American Legion Women's Auxiliary for their dedication and support of our Air Force Cadets,” said Thomas Trusty, Trine University Air Force ROTC advisor.
