Cadets Participate in Lt Benjamin Foulois Memorial Service.

The Ft Sam Benjamin Foulois Memorial Service commemorated the first military aviation flight 107 years ago on March 2nd, 1910. Sixty-seven FHS ROTC cadets attended and our Color Guard Drill Team and Cadet Chorale participated in the program.  After lunch the cadets visited the Ft Sam Medical Museum.  It was the first unit visit ever of the Ft Sam Houston Army Post.
