Hot 100 to Join Medal of Honor Recipient & Future Soldiers at Swearing-In Ceremony in VA Beach


This week will be a special one for the 30-some future soldiers, soon to be sworn in at the Delta Hotel in Virginia Beach. Not only will they be committing, through a time-honored tradition, to serving their country and its citizens against all enemies foreign and domestic, but they’ll be joined by one of the Iraq War’s most inspiring veterans.

Expected to attend the proceedings is Staff Sgt. David Bellavia, a Medal of Honor recipient. As a squad leader in the 1st Infantry Division, during Operation Phantom Fury in Fallujah, Iraq, Staff Sgt. Bellavia’s heroism and perseverance in the line of duty earned him the nation’s highest military decoration.

On Thursday at 12:30pm, Hot 100 will be on-site to witness the moment, with our own WatersOnAir in the presence of these inspiring men & women. Expect to see photos from the ceremony!
