High school seniors from Portland and Vancouver who are enlisting in the armed forces after graduation are being honored by the city of Vancouver and current military members.
The students will be recognized for aspiring to military careers during a special 10 a.m. ceremony on Saturday, April 24 at the Fort Vancouver Artillery Barracks. Sponsored by the Community Military Appreciation Committee, the annual event will include Vancouver Mayor Anne McEnerny-Ogle, Clark County Councilor Gary Medvigy and other community and military representatives, but will be closed to the public this year to adhere to Covid-19 social distancing guidelines.
