A salute to new soldiers

By ROBERT LINNEHAN | The Voorhees Sun

The young men and women of Camden County who graduate high school and decide to join the armed forces will have a special night devoted to their service.

The first High School Enlistee Recognition Ceremony will take place Tuesday, June 2, at the Mansion in Voorhees Township. The event will honor high school graduates in Camden County who have chosen to serve in the armed forces.

Dr. Kenneth Hartman, a current Cherry Hill board of education member, said 48 of the 55 graduating high school seniors in Camden County who have dedicated themselves to the armed services will be attending the event.

Hartman, a veteran of the U.S. Army from 1980 to 1990 who reached the rank of first lieutenant, said the ceremony will give the new recruits a send off they truly deserve.
