​Illustrious Sirs and Brethren, below are the ROTC/JROTC medals the Norfolk Valley presented this year.  Two of our members of the Norfolk Valley were particularly helpful in making this possible:  Robert McBride KCCH and “Gus” Gustafson eagerly represented our Valley with distinction at these functions.   Without their help, the Norfolk Valley would not have been represented at all these schools.  There were some evenings that as many as three schools held their ceremonies at the same time in different locations.  As Regional Representative for the National Sojourners  (South Eastern VA), this team assisted me in presenting the National Sojourner Medals to the ROTC Universities and all but the Virginia Beach schools (they were presented by National Sojourners Chapter 424).
