NORTH FORSYTH — The North Forsyth High School Junior ROTC marked Veterans Day, the 239thbirthday of the Marine Corps and the 50th anniversary of U.S. military involvement in Vietnam and Southeast Asia during a ceremony Monday night. And like any good birthday celebration, the event involved cake. In this case, it was a time-honored Corps’ tradition of the oldest Marine present receiving a piece of cake and then passing it on to the youngest.
