On 9th November 2023, Manu’a High School Army JROTC from 8th Brigade conducted the Veterans Day Ceremony honoring Manu’a veterans residing locally.
The primary goal is to establish a relationship between the Cadets and local Veterans. This allows the veterans to give the task force supporting advice and through sharing their experiences, give Cadets an understanding of encounters and challenges one might face when choosing the military as a career path

•Raising US and AM Samoa Flags: Singing anthems
•Post Colors, Veteran Speech, Moment of silence
•Giving gifts: Veteran T-shirts w/ Segaula Logo

The Veterans Day Ceremony resulted successfully in the attendance of veterans from all around the Manu’a district. Veterans shared words of wisdom, promoting morale and determination to do good in school to set and gear up for a career path in the military. This development allowed the task force to build a network with school organizations, local community leaders, businesses, and feeder schools. By uniting in support, partnerships with the MHS Student Council, the people of the community, and the Veterans promoted JROTC growth mentally, physically, and financially.
