ROTC band, rifle team entertains veterans

LAWTON, Okla._The Lawton/Fort Sill Veterans Center hosted an ROTC band and precision rifle team from the New Mexico Military Institute.

The group put on a concert to entertain local veterans as a way to thank them for their service. Captain Bill Lamb said they perform at events all over the nation, but they especially enjoy the opportunity to perform for older veterans.

"We have a lot of veterans who work at the institute and teach and everything, but it's just important for these gentlemen here, World War II and Korea vets, we are losing these guys and gals at a great rate every day. We just want to thank them for their service," said Capt. Lamb.

The New Mexico Military Institute's ROTC program commissions roughly 35 lieutenants each year.
