University of Portland Air Force ROTC Detachment 695 hosted their first Dining-out since 2019. A formal military dinner where Cadre, Cadets, and guests build comraderies, recognize Cadets' achievements, and Commissioning Cadets receive their 2nd Lieutenant ranks or "Butter Bars". This year they had the opportunity to listen to a Medal of Honor Recipient and former Army Ranger, Leroy Petry.
