Welcome to Military Adventure Camp 2013!

Greetings to all!

My name is Sgt. First Class Brian Lehnhardt, and I'm the new U.S. Army Cadet Corps (USAC) Media Relations and Public Affairs officer.  I have been involved with USAC for a little over a year now as a volunteer adviser to the National Capital Region unit in Maryland.  I just retired from the U.S. Army after a 26 year career as a Combat Documentation Specialist and Visual Information Manager.  What all that means is not only can I take a picture, but I managed those who help tell the Army story.  Now it is my job to tell the USAC story.  I'm very proud to be a part of this organization, and hope to be a voice for it for many years to come.

Seeing that this is only my third week working at USAC Headquarters in Millersburg, Ky., I'd like to think that as the new guy in town, I'm seeing all the inner and outer workings of everything that is going on with fresh eyes.  Those eyes are not so different as the youth that are about to arrive here on campus for the start of summer Military Adventure Camp.  So my future blogs will be talking about my observations.  I will be silently observing (and taking photos) of the youth in our care; their trials and tribulations, successes, and personal triumphs. I want to capture the emotion and essence of why our youth come to places like this, and share with you their thoughts and feelings so we all can maybe gain some wisdom for ourselves.  I also plan on highlighting the staff here at USAC who are training your sons and daughters and find out what makes them want to be here, and why programs like this are so important. 

I hope you will join me on this adventure!  Please go to our Facebook page U.S. Army Cadet Corps - Strategic Communications page to see photos and short blurbs about the action, then come back here every so often for future blogs about the inner-workings of the programs offered here at Forest Hill Station.  I would also like you to leave your comments, questions and critique of the blogs, as your opinions do matter to me.  If you would like to ask me a question directly, please email me at brian.d.lehnhardt@armycadets.org.

So with that, onward with the beginning of training!...
