Miss Vanessa Dempsey, Formoso, will share some of her experiences with the group on her activities as a broadcast journalist inth Old Guard, which is a part of the 3rd U.S. Infantry at Fort Meyer, Va. Dempsey graduated from Valley Center High School in 1999 and three days after her graduation was on her way to Fort Jackson, South Carolina, to begin her Army career. "I had al- ways wanted to serve my country,'" stated Dempsey. The fact that her fa- ther was with the National Guard for 30 years was probably also an influ- ence. She received Advanced Indi- vidual Training (AIT) at Fort Meade, Md. Dempsey is one of the first l0 women to become amember of the Old Guard. After three years she has stepped out of her blue wool uniform of the Old Guard and will move on to further her Army career as she will be stationed at Yakota Air Force Base in Japan. Her duties there will be to serve with the Armed Forces Radio and TV Pacific in the area of brgadcasting. Dempsey served as the announcer of the Old Guard many times and used the words', "Ladies and Gentlemen, the President of the United States, to in- troduce the President of the United States. She has had the privilege of intro- ducing President Bush several times at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery prior to his participation in the ceremony where a wreath is placed at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. "One of my happiest appearances in the eyes of the public was this past June when I announced the Presiden- tial Proclamation of the Korean War Armistice at the Korean War Memo- rial,"-stated Dempsey. "It's at times like this with all the dignitaries and four star and three "star Generals that you don't.want to mess up." At Arlington National Cemetery she knew they were going to play the Four Cords before her announcement of the President. She could tell the audience was waiting on her and later President Bush acknowledged Dempsey for her composure under stress. , Dempsey shared that one of the hardest duties she experienced was on Sept. 11,2001, when the Pentagon was hit. She had left her base and was on her "mission" to the Pentagon when she was stopped and called back for a briefing just five minutes away from the scene. "We were called to a 10 minute briefing and then ordered to Pentagon. Dempsey noted that half of the Old Guard members had already left to begin the arrangements for the Spirit of America show in Ohio. "We worked long hours from Sept. 11 to the 15th. Tents were set up in the parking area. We were allowed to leave for an hour to get showers." Dempsey commented, "People were unrecognizable. We used driver's licenses to 'see people'." Later one of her jobs was to take family members through the disaster area. As Dempsey was taking a group of six or seven she was asked by a six or seven year old, "i f her mother were qwickly." "Yes" was Dempsey' s comment as she recognized the girl from a picture on a desk. While doing recovering, Dempsey shared several unusual circumstances. Items that could be salvaged from the ruins were removed. A flag was hang- ing on a wall that was burnt all around. However, the flag was in perfect corn dition and when removed, the wall behind it was perfectly white. This flag was folded and the Fill gave it to the Old Guard, who in turn presented it to the Smithsonian. Another instance was when a dozen roses were found in their plastic wrap- ping and not one single singe. "They were perfect with drops of dew on their petals and looked like they just ~:ame from the flower shop." Happier duties for Dempsey were on occasions such as welcoming the members of the WinterOlympics when she was honored to do the ceremony. She also announced the ceremony for the D-Day memorial at the Super Dome in New Orleans, which was filled to capacity, 70,000 people were in the audience. "One can't see the people because of the lights. Miss Dempsey, is the daughter:of Dan and Lynn Dempsey, Formoso, and the granddaughter of Forrest Dempsey. I Jewel!
