The AFRO honored those who have served the country on Nov. 7 at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum in Baltimore. Prominent military leaders from around the state of Maryland were in attendance, including Adjutant General Janeen Birckhead, former Adjutant General Linda Singh and Anthony C. Woods, secretary of the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs. 

Speakers and honorees of the event shared personal testimonies of the veteran that impacted their life and memories from their own time in the service. The event also honored the Morgan State University ROTC Program. 

Honorees received a framed copy of the AFRO, with their own story front and center, and each guest received a copy of “This is Our War,” included in the price of their ticket.
