Flagler County, FL - Enlisted Flagler County graduating high school seniors have recently been awarded Military Service Honor Cords.
On Tuesday, April 24, the Flagler County Veterans Advisory Council held a special ceremony at VFW Post 8696, located at 47 Old Kings Road North in Palm Coast. There, the brave young men and women who have already enlisted in the Armed Forces were presented with red, white, and blue cords to honor their pledge to serve the country.
“On behalf of all of the county’s veterans, the Flagler County Veterans Advisory Council would like to present you with a Military Service Honor Cord,” said Veterans Advisory Council Chair, Robert Beck in an invitation sent out to enlisted students.
“The Flagler Veterans Advisory Council wishes you all the best as you take what you’ve learned at home and in school, and apply it to the rest of your life,” said Beck. “You have a great journey ahead.”
These graduates will have the opportunity to display their patriotism during their graduation ceremonies, as the Flagler County School District has given its approval for the students to wear the cords.
“It is wonderful to be able to honor these young men and young women in this way,” said Flagler County Commission Chair and retired U.S. Navy captain of 27 years, Greg Hansen.
