On Sunday 22 September, Cadets from Spangdahlem High & Middle School AFJROTC & Civil Air Patrol participated in the commemoration ceremonies marking the 75th Anniversary of the Liberation of Ettelbruck during the Battle of the Bulge in World War II. This was a tremendous learning event that provided students a personal experience in learning about this historic event. In addition to their interaction with the historical role-players, students marched in the parade as part of the 52FW contingent, and they assisted dignitaries with the laying of wreaths at the monument. Particularly noteworthy, they were able to get a photo at the Patton Memorial with Mrs Helen AyerPatton, General George Patton's granddaughter.
