Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - If you weren't in the holiday spirit, this could be annoying…
UND's Army ROTC marched on campus before the sun was up Monday morning, and they marched to President Kelly's house to wish him and his wife a Merry Christmas.
Again, it's still dark, and really early.
Luckily for the cadets, President Kelly was in a good mood and came out to thank them.
The pre-dawn festivities are part of a long-time military tradition, honoring those who serve.
Ltc. Clarence Carroll III- Professor of Military Science, UND: “It's just one of those things to pay respect to President Kelly and his wife. And although he's not our commanding officer he is the president of our university and all of our students wanted to show him some respect this morning.”
The students also presented the Kellys with a holiday basket.
