During the 1970’s, there was a terrible wrong that I hope to right within our community of cavers. For whatever reason, our brave men and women returning home from military duty in the 1970’s were not always met with the proper admiration and appreciation that they deserved. In fact, they were sometimes met with less than admirable scenarios. On Saturday evening there will be a tribute to those among our attendees that served in the military that properly recognizes their commitment and sacrifices to our country and the freedoms that we enjoy.
Kindly reach out to your fellow cavers that attend OTR and share the following information:
If you are currently serving in the military (whether it be US or Canadian), or if you have previously served in the military (again it can be either US or Canadian); please send an e-mail to: OTR2019@otr.org that includes the following information:
- Name of the OTR Attendee that will be attending OTR 2019 that either currently serves in the military or has served in the military (either US military or Canadian military).
- Military Rank of the OTR Attendee that will be attending OTR 2019.
- Branch of Service of the OTR Attendee that will attending OTR 2019.
This information will need to be submitted to: OTR2019@otr.org by July 18th, 2019. Please indicate “OTR Military” in the subject line of the e-mail. Please don’t delay on getting this information submitted, as I want to make sure that all deserving members of our military family are included in the military tribute at OTR
