VETERANS DAY

We wish to honor those who have served not only from Gracemont but from Caddo County both in the past and the present. Below is a list of recent past graduates who are or have served in the armed forces. A list of veterans who have served in the armed forces in wars past may be seen here. We are sure that some have been missed and ask that you contact us with any names that have not, as of yet, been put on this list. The students and faculty of the Gracemont Schools want to say a heartfelt 'Thank You' for the sacrifices that the Veterans have given for all of us.
STAND STRONG and STAY FREE

The primary mission of each of the military divisions is as follows:

U. S. Army: Protect and defend the U.S. and its interests by way of ground troops, armor (tanks), artillery, attack helicopters and tactical nuclear weapons.

Marine Corps: Able to assault, capture, and control "beach heads" which then provide a route to attack the enemy from almost any direction. Often referred to as the "Infantry of the Navy", Marines specialize in amphibious operations.

Navy: Maintain freedom of the seas, making it possible for the U.S. to use all bodies of water when and where necessary; as well as carrying Marines to areas of conflict. Carrying an average of 80 aircraft, Navy aircraft carriers are able to deploy to areas where fixed runways are not possible. Navy submarines allow for stealth attacks on our enemies from right off their shore while Navy ships can attack targets from great distances.

U. S. Air Force: Defend the U.S. and its interests through the exploitation of air and space. To accomplish this mission the Air Force operates fighter aircraft, tanker aircraft, light and heavy bomber aircraft, transport aircraft, and helicopters; the latter of which are used mainly for rescue of downed-aircrew and special operations missions. The Air Force is also responsible for all military satellites and the control of all our strategic nuclear ballistic missiles.

Coast Guard: In peacetime, the Coast Guard is primarily concerned with law enforcement, boating safety, sea rescue, and illegal immigration control. However, the President of the United States can transfer part or all of the Coast Guard to the Department of the Navy in times of conflict.

Reserves & National Guard: Able to be tapped for trained personnel and equipment during times of need. The primary difference between the two is that the Reserves are "owned" and managed by the federal government and each state "owns" its own National Guard. However, the President of the United States or the Secretary of Defense can "activate" state National Guard members into Federal military service during times of need.
