Camden Military Academy added a couple of additional ceremonies at its 2014 Homecoming celebration that was held on October 18, 2014.  SGM William Greene, Jr. had retired in August and he and his family were recognized by a parade of the corps of cadets.  He was presented a clock with the CMA crest and an inscription that read:

Colonel Boland also presented his wife, Juliette, a bouquet of pink roses, in recognition of her service and support to CMA, as well as for cancer awareness. SGM and Mrs. Greene are also Knight members of the Excalibur Society.

Earlier during the homecoming lunch in the dining hall. Carlisle Alumnus, Fred Thomas, CMS’71, presented a framed Carlisle collection of all the medals and rankings that were used at Carlisle Military School to CMA’s headmaster, Col. Eric Boland, as well as, headmaster emeritus, Colonel Lanning Risher. The handmade glass case also shows his letter C for the rifle team. He ranked 3rd place Prone Position in a competition of hundreds of high schools and colleges that were judged by Texas A&I University ROTC in 1970. (Back in those days, the targets were mailed out to be judged and sent back with the results several months later.)
