Early Saturday morning, our battalion hosted one of the Rutherford County JROTC Raider events. We were able to dominate the field in almost every event but placing first overall. Some may say it was "home field advantage" but the Riverdale Raider Platoon is very hardworking and dedicated to achieving victory.
Mini camp is a great opportunity for new cadets to be introduced to the JROTC program. Throughout this camp, cadets participated in many different activities to prepare them for their JROTC careers. Among these activities were marching, physical training, trust exercises,and a presentation from one of our recruiters. We had 33 freshmen in attendance for both days which was the best turnout we have had in years.
