OCS of Northeast Ohio

Our Community Salutes of Northeast Ohio was formed in 2010 as a Federally Registered non-profit organization created torecognize and honor graduating high school seniors (and their parents) from Northeast Ohio who are enlisting in the Armed Services after graduation. Local citizens, business and community leaders, and Veterans’ organizations donate their time and money to support an annual Recognition Ceremony and Reception. The 5th annual recognition ceremony was held on May 6, 2015.
