Every year Cadets across the world pay tribute to those who marched and those that died in the Bataan Death March. This year Fairborn JROTC's memorial March had over 100 participants. 

FHS JROTC would like to thank everyone that came out and pay special tribute to one person in particular. Mr. Billy Graves marched 14 miles cheering on everyone as he joined the blister footed club. Not once did Billy complain, in fact he helped several people stay motivated during the March and never lost that smile he is famous for. Thanks for joining the fun and giving up your time Billy. Even though he is not currently in the program,   JROTC provided Billy with a certificate of completion and honorary ribbon.
