The John Sevier Chapter of the Tennessee Society Sons of the American Revolution recognized The Central High School JROTC “First in Freedom” Battalion on Monday for their Patriotism and participation in the Sept. 11, 2023 Flag Retirement ceremony co-hosted with VFW Post 1697 and American Legion Post 257 at the Collegedale Veterans Memorial Park.
John Sevier Chapter Secretary Paul Bobenhausen made the official presentation of the SAR’s America 250th Organizational Streamer to Cadet Lt.
Col. Fraiscruz the Battalion Commander.
The streamer presentation was made as part of the chapter’s observation of the 250th Anniversary program honoring the events and people of the America Revolution. A short historical presentation was made during the flag retirement ceremony honoring the Continental Army’s action at the Battle of Brandywine Creek, Sept. 11, 1777.
Any organization participating with the SAR during an event celebrating the 250th Anniversary of the Revolution may be honored with a participation streamer. The celebration period runs to the end of 2033.
