Air Force Airman DuWayne A. Demory Jr. graduated from basic military training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio.

The airman completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills.

Airmen who complete basic training earn four credits toward an associate degree in applied science through the Community College of the Air Force.

He is the son of Tracey Demory of Appletown Road, Boonsboro.

Demory is a 2008 graduate of Boonsboro High School.

Army ROTC Cadet Phillip A. Dudley is one of 275 cadets who attended the 2010 George C. Marshall Foundation ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) Awards and Leadership Seminar in Lexington, Va. The award is named in the honor and legacy of General of the Army George C. Marshall, who served in World War II and outlined a post-war era program of economic assistance and recovery for worn-torn Europe.


The awards are presented annually to the most outstanding Army senior cadets in military science studies and leadership values in each ROTC battalion at host universities or colleges. The student-cadets are the best and brightest in the ROTC program who will serve as future leaders in the Army. Top cadets from each battalion represent the very best of a highly selective organization.

At the seminar, cadets participated in focus groups and roundtable discussions and lectures on the theme of national security issues of the U.S. and the Army's security role in the international arena.

Upon meeting academic requirements for graduation and completion of the ROTC program at Shippensburg University, Pa., the cadet will receive a bachelor's degree and a commission of second lieutenant in the Army.

He is the son of Peggy J. Dudley of Brinker Drive, Hagerstown, Md.

His wife, Kara, is the daughter of Geoffrey S. Venables of Yoakum Parkway, Alexandria, Va., and Catherine M. Venables of Bay Parkway, Huntingtown, Md.

The cadet graduated in 1996 from South Hagerstown High School and received an additional bachelor's degree in 2000 from Salisbury State University.
