flagThe American Legion Auxiliary of Hamilton has made a donation to Trine University’s U.S. Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps.

Auxiliary president Claudia Beck and vice president Joyce Wilson visited Trine University last week to present the ROTC with an American flag, a flag pole and a strap to be used when carrying the flag. Trine ROTC Cadet Capt. Mark Haydock, a Fort Wayne junior majoring in mechanical engineering, and Cadet Capt. Tanner Vannieuwenhoven, a Pulaski, Wis., junior majoring in civil engineering, accepted the gifts from the auxiliary leaders.

Trine’s ROTC program is offered as a “crosstown” agreement with the ROTC program at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind. In the past, Trine ROTC students have borrowed an American flag and equipment from the Notre Dame unit.
