The Donaldsonville High School Air Force JROTC honored military veterans at the New Orleans Hornets “Military Appreciation Night” at the New Orleans Arena Sunday.

The Air Force JROTC presented the American Flag before the game during the National Anthem singing. The students participate in three games a year for the Hornets and have been doing so faithfully for the past three years.

Sargeant Robert Oates said it’s just a good experience for the kids to get out of Donaldsonville and see some of their mentors in the professional athletes.

“And it’s an opportunity for them to pay tribute to our flag and see everyone pay tribute to our veterans,” Oates said.

The Air Force JROTC will again go to the New Orleans Arena on April 14 to present the color guard before the game.
