A record number of Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps ROTC alumni, members of the current NROTC unit at Holy Cross, as well as non-alumni, friends and family who support the activities of the Society, attended the dinner, which honors the memory of Rev. Joseph Timothy O’Callahan, S.J., recipient of the Medal of Honor for heroic service in WWII. This year, the keynote speaker was the highest-ranking officer ever to stand at the O’Callahan podium, Adm. Michelle Howard, Vice Chief of Naval Operations. She delivered an inspiring speech about using one’s moral and ethical courage in times of crisis and in everyday life. She also likened the camaraderie of Holy Cross alumni and students to the fellowship among Navy personnel serving on a vessel at sea. (Photo courtesy of Suzanne D’Angelo)
