The First Academy will hold its Annual Veterans Celebration on Wednesday, November 10th at 10:30 am in the Worship Center at First Baptist Orlando. Watch the ceremony live online here.

All Veterans are welcome to attend. The celebration will feature the Presentation of Colors by the United States Air Force ROTC Color Guard from the University of Central Florida, patriotic music, and a time to honor all Veterans in attendance.

There will also be two special presentations. One will be the recognition of the 80th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor. The second will be the French Legion of Honor Medal presentation to United States Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Mel Jenner, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam Veteran.

Event speakers include student leaders involved in The First Academy’s Wounded Warrior Club, First Baptist Orlando Senior Pastor Dr. David Uth, TFA Alumnus and United States Navy Lt. Commander Peter Barkley, United States Air Force Colonel Michael Peeler, French Honorary Consulate Brigitte Jensen, and several other local military members.

The ceremony will also feature performances by the Lower School Choir and Middle & Upper School Chorus and Concert Band.

We look forward to welcoming Central Florida Veterans to this memorable event.
