MARYSVILLE — The cadets of Marysville Tomahawk Company Naval Junior ROTC distinguished themselves yet again during their

special assistant for CVN Operations, Naval Reactors. “You’re looking at the future of America’s finest, right here.” After Duke reviewed the troops with Cadet Lt. Cmdr. Sarah Hagberg, the commanding officer of

MARYSVILLE — Chili, conversation and camaraderie were all on the menu as the Marysville American Legion Post 178 Hall, located at 119 Cedar Ave., invited veterans and civilian community members alike to their annual Veterans Day open house and chili feed on Monday, Nov. 11. The event opened with a short ceremony which included a moment of silence, to commemorate the signing of the armistice ending World War I on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 1918, fol-
lowed by a flag ceremony in honor of the occasion, but the majority of time was set aside for veterans to sit with their families, friends and fellow service members, and to share their own stories of service. The respective tours of duty of Walt Bailey and Farlan Dubarry bookended World War II, since Bailey had enlisted in the Army in the summer before the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941, while Dubarry’s time in the Army Infantry saw him spending his 19th birthday in a foxhole in Okinawa in 1945.

Randy Brasfield, who serves as the senior naval science instructor for the Marysville NJROTC, called out 29 of the 153 cadets for receiving perfect scores on their inspections. “That’s 44 percent of the unit that earned 10 out of 10 on their personal inspections,” said retired Navy Chief Petty Officer Kathy Wilde, the naval science instructor for the Marysville NJROTC. “The average score for the
