Navy captain talks to Salisbury Academy students

U.S. Navy Capt. James T. Loeblein spoke to Salisbury Academy students, faculty, and guests at a schoolwide assembly Nov. 3. The school’s virtue for November is stewardship, so in his presentation, Loeblein tied the virtue of stewardship to the sacrifices veterans make for the benefit of U.S. citizens. He asked the students to think about the sacrifice of being away from families for a long period of time, and what it might feel like to miss special events and everyday routines of being with loved ones.
Loeblein directed the students’ attention to the ribbons on a military uniform, asking the students to think of them as representing sacrifices made for stewardship. He directed their attention to the American flag, noting that veterans see the flag as red stripes for blood, white stripes for sweat and white stars in a blue field for tears — all given for stewardship of their country. He then led the students in the pledge of allegiance.
A native of Salisbury, Loeblein is the son of Anne and Bob Loeblein, twin brother of Tom, and brother of Carolyn Byrd, all of Salisbury. James Loeblein is married to Carol Livsey-Loeblein; his two nieces, Laurel and Joy, are alumni of Salisbury Academy. James Loeblein is Navy Senate Liaison Director for the Office of Legislative Affairs, Department of the Navy in Washington, D.C.
The school’s speaker for their Veteran’s Day assembly will be David Lee, president of the Military Officers Association of America, Central Carolina Chapter. Major Queen Williams and the Salisbury High School JROTC will present and post the colors.
