Marine Corps JROTC students recently visited the Quantico National Cemetery, the Presidential helicopter squadron, HMX-1 and the National Museum of the Marine Corps.
The second day of the trip took the cadets to the Patuxent River, Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, MD. They visited a helicopter squadron, a tilt-rotor squadron, a Global Hawk squadron and a classified research and development lab. The cadets had the opportunity to “fly” a number of simulators!
The last day the cadets visited the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. They toured the campus and also attended the USNA vs. SMU football game.
The extended time with their instructors, Major Petruzziello and Staff Sergeant Strong, as invaluable as well.
