Cadets to Visit Tarver-Rendon

Cadets will visit with Kindergarten through 4th Grade students at our new Tarver-Rendon Elementary School on Friday, September 13th. The visit is intended to assist their students in seeing opportunities that will be available as they progress through the stages of their education. These cadets have been hand-picked, and each remains responsible for any work they miss in the classes missed this day. The tiny ones will have a chance to ask any of their questions and receive recommendations from our cadet mentors. We thank the Counselors and Principal for the invitation to visit.

9-11: “We Remember”

We will forever remember the terrible events of September 11, 2001. The lives lost by our citizens, members from our trade partners, police officers, fire fighters and first responders cannot be forgotten. We also remember those lives lost aboard United Flight 93 and the Pentagon. Cadets will be in formation wearing their red battalion shirts at 7 am on Wednesday, September 11th. Ben Barber cadets report directly to Ben Barber for class. Do not attend this event rather than a BB course. The ceremony will end by 7:30 am. Cadets will then return to their appropriate class.

Legacy JROTC Welcomes New Students

We want to extend personal invitations to all students at this fascinating school, and certainly attempting to bring two new faces to JROTC. The program offers several changes as we get started. More cadets equal more opportunities! Cadets will be the primary instructors for most aspects of Drill and Physical Training. The Raiders, PT Team, Color Guard, Cyber Patriot, and Drill Team are looking for committed members to join the teams. We look forward to seeing each of you next Wednesday.

Color Guard Honors Vietnam Vets

The Bronco Color Guard honored the 1st Cavalry Division 2-8 Infantry “Sky Warriors” (Air Assault) Saturday. The soldiers and their families told many interesting stories and celebrated their 50th Anniversary. The unit rembered eight Sky Warriors that have passed this year. We were in great company of heroes that served the American nation and made tremendous sacrifices.

Thank each of you for your commitment to freedom, both in the jungles of Vietnam and elsewhere around the globe before and even since 1970. Our country is grateful. ‘We will never forget’.
