This past Saturday our Eastern Washington University (EWU) Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) “Fighting Eagles” battalion Color Guard team had the honor of presenting our nation’s colors during the two separate graduation ceremonies that day. Both graduation ceremonies were held at a packed Spokane Arena in downtown Spokane.
