GKB commissionees 2014

This year’s commissioning ceremony at Clarkson University was on 9 May.  We commissioned 8 Cadets this year.  That may seem like a low number, but we had already commissioned one Lieutenant in the fall, and 5 in December, so these eight put us one short of our mission with Bears and Saints still to pin.

Thanks to our guest speaker Air Force Colonel Timothy LaBarge
