Cadets headed over to the Rappelling Tower to coduct rappelling training. For some this would be the first time they've ever rappelled, others are veterans of the tower. Pictured on the right are MSG Jose Monegro (feeding the rope as the cadet moves) and Cadet Gregory Bush (as he is lowering himself into the starting position).
During the summer months, cadets will attend the Leadership Development Assessment Course. There cadets will be tested on all of the knowledge they have gained throughout their time in ROTC. Skills tested include Land navigation and the ability to lead a squad and section in a mock mission. LDAC is held on Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Seattle, Washington.
This past Saturday, the Raider Battalion seniors went on a trip to Fort Recovery in Ohio to learn about the Battle of Wabash from historian and author of Wabash 1791: St Clair's defeat, John F. Winkler. Cadets analyzed tactical decisions made by both armies. They also visited the museum which containied many recovered items such as arrow heads, rifles and bayonets, pieces of uniforms and documents. Pictured is the cover of his book.
