Eagle Battalion Post Colors for Blue Origin Event

The Eagle Battalion was honored to participate and Post the Colors for the Columbia High School's Blue Origin event. Michael Edmonds serves as SVP, Strategy, Marketing and Sales at Blue Origin, a private space company developing vehicles and technologies that dramatically improve access to space for people and payloads.

General John Hyten (Ret) serves as Executive Director for its foundation, Club for the Future, and as a strategic advisor to senior leadership. General (Retired) Hyten shared his personal story about what he believed to be impossible that became possible. His speech was inspiring to the students and educators in the room. The students participated in activites with the Blue Orgin team, by filling out post cards that will be sent to space and returned to that student.

It was an amazing experience!
