Charles City JROTC presents colors at Redskins game

Posted: Updated:
CHARLES CITY, VA (WWBT) -

Four lucky Charles City High School students got the opportunity of a lifetime Sunday at FedEx Field.  The members of the Junior ROTC presented the colors before the Redskins home opener against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Led by Sergeant 1st Class Steward Greene and Cadet Corporal Brandon S. Collie, the group protected the American flag as well as their Charles City High School flag, bringing them to midfield for the Star-Spangled Banner.

This is the fifth time that Greene has had the opportunity to bring his students to a Redskins game.  Former owner Jack Kent Cooke first invited him in 1997.
