Closing remarks were given by CPT ( Retired ) Brown, a graduate of Warren High School.

Printed on the Program were these words:

When you see someone in a uniform, someone who serves us all, doing military duty, answering their country’s call, Take a moment to thank them for protecting what you hold dear; tell them you are proud of them; Make it very clear. Just tap them on the shoulder, give a smile, and say, “Thanks for what you’re doing to keep us safe in the USA!”
