Cadets from the Tuloso-Midway NJROTC unit dressed in their finest uniforms to take part in the 2017 Patriotic Dinner held onboard the USS Lexington. 

The event was sponsored by the 3rd Coast Aviation Squadron. The guest speaker was LTCOL Jay Stout. He is a retired USMC fighter pilot and author of 11 books detailing the many heroic deeds of US Air Force bomber crews during World War II.

The cadets enjoyed a fine meal and the Lexington support crew provided a great experience for all in attendance.
