JROTC HONORS VETS WITH FLAGS AT GOSHEN CEMETARY

Posted November 12 at 3:57pm

Veteran’s Day, a day when millions of citizens across the United States take a day to come together and celebrate the lives of those who have served our country. Yet, this year, the JROTC cadets are celebrating Veteran’s Day a little early. On Friday November 7, 2014,  a group of cadets left school early to participate in an annual ceremony at the Goshen Cemetery. Their job was simple:  take a flag and put it in the ground next to each service member’s grave. Yet, this task isn’t as simple as it seems. As each soldier deserves the utmost respect, every team of cadets would stand by the soldier’s grave and proudly state the veteran’s name and position within their military branch. Then the two cadet team would carefully put the flag in the ground and salute in respect of the deceased hero. The JROTC cadets are filled with pride and gratitude towards the heroes who have spent their lives protecting our country. The JROTC cadets thank all of our Veteran’s as well as those who do everything they can to support and honor them.

JROTC PARTICIPATES IN LEADERSHIP COURSE AT WEST POINT

Posted November 3 at 2:38pm

On 17 October the JROTC students participated in the Leadership Reactionary Course (LRC) at West Point New York Military Academy. The cadets were put in teams of five to six and had to negotiate the different obstacles. For each obstacle the teams had to get all equipment and team members across these extremely challenging obstacles within a 15 minute period of time for each one. Every obstacle had one team leader that gave all the instructions. Each station (obstacle) had a different member of the team as the leader. The day concluded with an obstacle challenge between the Raiders and JROTC Senior. The Raiders put up an impressive time but it was no match for the seniors as they showed their Warrior Spirit in victory. Everyone had a great time and they are looking forward to doing it again next year. Go Warriors!
