My message this year to our cadets. WORK HARD every day so that you can become successful. Take your academics serious. Be the best you can and at the end you will reap the rewards. And mostly enjoy your life because today is given to us, but tomorrow is not.
Let’s get the unit back on track and let’s get the Distinguish Unit Award and place overall in the All Navy Drill League.
