TOPEKA (KSNT) – Topeka West High School is holding its annual Military Career Day on Friday.
Senior Junior ROTC instructor Richard Hodgson says there will be static displays of military vehicles from Fort Riley, the Kansas Army and Air National Guard and Army Reserves as well as Navy and Marine Corps. The Kansas Army National Guard has brought in a UH-60 Black Hawk Helicopter to give some cadets opportunities to go on flights.
