Special thank you to Oxford Community Member Todd Sager for help providing a Department of Homeland Security Air & Marine Operations, UH - 60 Black-Hawk to fly over the field during the National Anthem. Oxford Staff members Jim Rourke, Jill Powers and Oxford Policeman Jeff Cardinal were acknowledged -

  • Rourke served from 1983 thru 1986 at Camp Pendleton in California and 1987 in Okinawa. While assigned to Camp Pendleton, Jim Served two ½ on the base special response team as an assistant team leader. Jim graduated from the Los Angeles county Special Response SRT Academy. While at Okinawa, Rourke was assigned to Customs and Immigration.


  • Powers served for eight years and was stationed at Ft. McClellan in Alabama, Ft. Clayton in Panama, Ft. Lewis in Washington, Ft. Soto in Cano Honduras and Owosso, Michigan. Powers was a Combat Military Police woman and was trained in Special Reaction Team, Drug Suppressant Team and Traffic Control. Jill was an M-60 machine gunner in the Panamanian War-Operation Just Cause, and a 60 gunner during many humanitarian aid missions throughout Honduras. Powers highly recommends all branches of the military to young men and women. "It's a great way to see the world and to try things you never thought you would get a chance to do. It is also a great way to learn a trade or earn money for college while serving your country. (Be Proud To Be an American!)"


  • Deputy Jeff Cardinal served our country from 1993 to 1997 as a paratrooper in the Army's 82nd Airborne Division in Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and was also deployed to Haiti during his service. He continues to serve us all as a Deputy with the Oakland County Sheriff's office, and continues to serve and support his fellow veterans by working closely with Mission 22. Mission 22 is a non-profit organization that is focused on the health and well-being of our nation's veterans. If anyone is interested in supporting our nation's veterans through Mission 22, Jeff asks that you visit the Mission 22 website at WWW.Mission22.com for more information.

"Thank you to all involved in helping accomplish our goal to honor Military Veterans!" - Oxford Athletic Event Coordinator Bryan Brandeberry
