FRA Honors All Branches of the Military During Veterans Day Assembly
FRA students, faculty, and staff gathered Monday to honor veterans who have served our country, including nine alumni currently on active duty.
Johnny Dorris Jr., 1LT, US Army, FRA Class of 1983, spoke to the assembly gathered, which included 40 guest veterans. He shared how his experiences at FRA helped prepare him for his service in the military and his continued life of service as a Christian. Dr. Fred Frawley, LTC US Army (Ret.), served as the master of ceremonies.
The FRA Vocal Ensemble, directed by Brenda Jewell, performed service songs from each military branch as Dr. Frawley recognized the branch and veterans who served in those branches stood, including one World War II veteran who served in the Coast Guard, Zina G. Mitchell, Coach Tucker's father-in-law. Nik Simpson, FRA's director of alumni relations, recognized the nine alumni currently serving in the military.
