Welcome Back Cadets!
Welcome back to all of our cadets and our incoming freshman cadets. We are looking forward to another outstanding year. We have already started building our schedule and the first couple months include off campus Color Guard events, Drill competitions, our annual Combat Dining-In and the Bataan Memorial Hike. As usual we will be busy. September 28th will be our "Combat Dining In" where C/Col Orlowski will hand over command of the unit to the next Corps commander. Our first drill competition will be at Cherokee High School in New Jersey on the 13th of October. This is a "1st year cadet" drill competition, where cadets will practice the events prior to the competition after lunch. The Battaan Memorial Hike will be held at the Valley Forge National Park again this year and we expect even more participation from JROTC units in PA, NJ and DE. For 1st year cadets, the Battaan hike is their first opportunity to earn a ribbon for their uniform. Keep checking back, we will continue to update this page as the year progresses and we set up more activities.
