NJROTC News – 60 cadets and guests attended this year’s Military Ball held at the Tyndall Air Force Base Heritage Club on Friday, March 1. Travelling in long yellow stretch limos, the cadets and guests were treated to tradition, ceremony and a wonderful time. The highlight of the evening was the Commander’s Waltz where all cadets, having learned to waltz in class, tripped the light fantastic.

The Drill Competition scheduled for Saturday, February 23 at FAMU was cancelled due to rain. The NJROTC is planning trip to the Naval Diving and Salvage Training Center for an orientation visit, FAMU for a college campus visit and Gulf High School in New Port Richey for an Athletic Competition.
