8th Grade Visits Washington, DC

Georgia Military College Prep School eighth grade students recently visited Washington, D.C. Below are some photos from their trip. The GMC Middle School Color Guard (C/SSG Aaron Brown, C/SGT Chobi Young, C/CPT Jostin Grimes, C/SGT T.J. Curtis and C/SGT Jordan Easterwood) presented the Colors at a Major League Baseball game between the Washington Nationals and the Atlanta Braves in Nationals Park. C/CPT Elliot Fairbrass and C/MAJ Meg Gray joined US Representative John Barrow (D-GA) to lay a wreath in memory of former US Congressman Carl Vinson at the United States Navy Memorial. In his remarks, Representative Barrow commented on the ties that bind today’s cadets to those who have gone before and to those yet to come, and how remarkable it is that those cadets gathered before him had the unique opportunity to honor one of the most important figures of the 20th century.
