FORT SAM HOUSTON, TX -- I had the privilege today to watch a act of kindness, compassion and selflessness of one of our our great students. Today the Sam Houston Hurricane Rifle Color Guard conducted a color guard at the Southside Senior Center for a Veterans Day salute. The team presented the National Colors flawlessly. At the End of the ceremony they handed out challenge coins to the veterans and to the color guard team. There was one veteran that came in late with a walker and Joshua Tovar noticed that that veteran did not receive one. Without hesitation Joshua approach the veteran and handed him the coin he was given. The veteran smiled from ear to ear and was so grateful to see this young man be so selfless and thanked him. Joshua will be recognized in front of his battalion with a promotion and an award today for this act of kindness.
