Ontonagon — While several Ontonagon High School students will be attending the upcoming 58th presidential inauguration ceremony, another native son will be attending too but in an official capacity.

Chief Petty Officer Colin H. Castle has been assigned to the Navy contingent of military personnel lining the presidential inauguration parade route in Washington, D.C. He is to be stationed in the front row along Pennsylvania Ave. near the Trump International Hotel, and he will have an “up close” view of President-elect Donald Trump as the parade travels to and from the Capitol building. His duties will be to render honors to the current president and the president-elect as they travel from the White House to the Capitol building for the swearing-in ceremony. He will also render honors to the newly sworn-in President Trump on the return trip from Capitol building to the White House.

Castle said “he felt very proud and honored to be selected as a part of this American tradition.”

A 17-year veteran, Castle is currently serving at the Naval Air Station Patuxent River in Maryland. He is the son of Dan Castle.
