Proud, motivated, and accomplished are words that illustrate the state of mind of all personnel in the Annual Training Battalion. The standards and expectations established on Arrival Day are no longer daunting or overwhelming. Repetition, repetition, repetition is helping to instill self-confidence and a willingness to tackle any challenge presented. If measured, that buoyancy would be depicted as a bright and shining beacon with visibility from space.
Again, only the U.S. Army can create soldiers. The mission of the U.S. Army Cadet Corps is “"To instill in young Americans, through a multi-faceted Army Cadet program which is physically and mentally challenging and rewarding, the importance of national pride, service to others and maintaining a drug-free and gang-free lifestyle." The effort and hard work exhibited by our recruits is rewarded with access to occasional indulgences and entertainment. Recruits and Cadets have access to sweets, gaming and an evening of camaraderie amongst each other.
