The First Salute Tradition shared between two Class of 2004 Albertus Graduates
The First Salute is an old tradition for US Service Branches in which newly commissioned officers give a silver dollar to the person from whom they receive the very first salute of their career. On December 4, 2020, Thomas Albrecht, 04, graduated from Navy Officer Candidate School in Newport, Rhode Island. On December 6, 2020, at Piermont Pier, NY, Ensign Thomas Albrecht, ’04, US Navy, received his First Salute from Staff Sergeant Michael Rubino, ’04, US Army.
Congratulations to Ensign Albrecht and Staff Sergeant Rubino! God Bless America!
