The Queen Creek High School Army JROTC Color Guard was invited to support the Arizona Army National Guard Aviation Ball at Falcon Field in Mesa, AZ on 2/4/23. Cadets presented, posted and retired the Colors and conducted the POW/MIA Ceremony. The highlight of the night was when the Cadets were able to talk with the Guest Speaker, Congressional Medal of Honor recipient COL Bruce Crandall, about his service as an Army Aviator.
