What we do as a Battalion:
As a Battalion we do many fund raisers to help the community. Throughout the year we do numerous color/honor guards, community service, and help with parking at our schools football games. But these are just the fund raisers. As a whole, our battalion marches in the local parade, and assist local organizations with support. We also provide cadets with the opportunity to join our various teams listed on this page. We teach our cadets core leadership values and useful knowledge that will help them, no matter what walk of life they pursue as adults. As a whole, our Battalion has a positive impact on the lives of our cadets, our school, and our community.
