At the football game against the La Joya Coyotes, members of the ROTC program participated in a special tribute in memory of those effected by the 9/11 terrorist attacks on America back in 2001.

“I proudly volunteered to be part of the tribute,” ROTC member, Eduardo Flores said.

Fifty students showed up to participate.

“Not a single one of those students who participated were alive when 9/11 took place, so it was nice seeing them pay tribute,” Major Noyola said.

Members of the ROTC program held 50 flags to represent all of the United States.

“9/11 didn’t just effect New York,” Noyola said. “It effected the 50 states.

Not only did members of ROTC hold up flags in remembrance at the game, but they also watched a webinar about the events that took place.

“We wanted them to be able to put faces to names. These people were not just names on a wall; they were brothers, sisters, parents and grandparents,” Noyola said.
