USAC anounces Operation Pond Hop 2014

How much more memorable will it be for your Cadet to talk about their summer to their friends: "I got to go to a summer camp that gave me a taste of what the military is like, AND I got to go to England to train with the British Army Cadet Forces!"

Friendships that could last a lifetime - memories that will be remembered for years to come!

For the first time, the U.S. Army Cadet Corps and Military Adventure Camp are proud to offer this once in a life time experience.  In cooperation with the British Army Cadet Forces of Hampshire and Isle of Wight, Operation Pond Hop 2014 will send up to 15 Military Adventure Camp participants to train alongside our British Army Cadet Force counterparts as they take part in their annual summer training program, August 9-24, 2014 (Travel days - depart Aug 7 from KY, leaving England on the 25th).

For information and eligibility requirements, please go to our Military Adventure Camp webpage at and click the Op Pond Hop banner.

U.S. Army Cadet Corps preps for their Winter Pathfinder Course in Decebmer

The U.S. Army Cadet Corps National Cadet Training Center in Millersburg, KY is ramping up for its Winter Pathfinder Course, held December 26-Jan 4th. This year plans to be more exciting then the last.

Winter Pathfinder training is realistic, rough, and extremely in depth.  It is designed to develop the individual’s self-confidence, leadership, and skill in application of basic principles and techniques while in a hostile winter environment.  Pathfinder training will teach and train Cadets to overcome mental and physical obstacles using realistic situations in small unit exercises.  “Through Pathfinder training, the Cadet will gain an insight into themselves and there fellow Cadets.”

Reservations are being accepted now by calling Sgt Shawn McCall at 5-605-520-5353 or you can email him at

Urgent Notice!

As the Acting Commander of USAC and Headmaster of Forest Hill Military Academy, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for allowing your child to participate in our Military Adventure Camp program.  We look forward to them joining us again this coming summer in Millersburg, Kentucky.

My time with USAC since February of this year has been exciting and difficult.  The organization has gone through a number of much needed changes. In the spring of 2013 the Kentucky Attorney General's Office began an investigation of our past finances and overall management. This culminated in August with the court appointment of Henry Watson III, COL, USA (RET) as Receiver to assist in addressing past financial discrepancies and mismanagement. To this end, we hope to have a reconstituted working Board of Directors in place soon.

Now it has come to our attention, that some people with a past association to USAC, have attempted to illegally take our Military Adventure Camp name, our website and Facebook page.  They have sent out a blatantly false email stating that the Military Adventure Camp is moving to Georgia. We intend to immediately take legal action to stop this shameful deception. These actions are in violation of the Order of the Bourbon Circuit Court which restrains interference with COL. Watson’s operation of USAC. 

I am sorry for any confusion.  SGT Shawn McCall is now our Director of Admissions and he will be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding the upcoming Winter Pathfinder Course, our Summer Military Adventure Camps, or admission to Forest Hill Military Academy. He can be reached at 859-484-2110 or
We look forward to seeing you soon,  
Jay Whitehead
Acting Commander USAC

Executive Officer
