Thursday, May 18, 2017 The Clovis Veterans Memorial District hosted a rare event for the community. U. S. Army Major General Peggy Combs of North American Aerospace Command (NORAD) and Northern Command (NORTHCOM) spoke to military and non-military community members about the status of our Homeland. It was a great privilege to attend this event. MG Combs is dynamic and her message to all patriots was this, “We have the watch 24/7, you can sleep easy”. She gave information on what it is that NORAD and Northcom actually does everyday. NORAD watches all of the airspace in conjunction with Canada’s military. Northcom is the “ground command”. She began her career in the U. S. Army when her mother, an Army veteran brought home an ROTC application for college. She speaks passionately about her 32 year career in the Army. She met her husband of 30 years when they both entered into the Army. MG Combs will be presiding over the commissioning ceremony of the Army and Air Force ROTC graduates from Ca. State University Fresno on Friday, May 19, 2017.
