Scott Regional Technology Center JROTC Cadet Corps act as color guard detail for Congressional Medal of Honor Training:
Five members of the Scott Regional Technology Center JROTC Cadet Corp recently traveled to Little Rock Arkansas to act as color guard detail for a recent Congressional Medal of Honor Training at the Clinton Library. The color guard detail was made up of Cadet Sergeant Major Ryan Burleson, Cadet Second Lieutenant Jeffery Kuhnert, Cadet Second Lieutenant Sam Masri, Cadet Corporal Marithza Reyes, and Cadet Corporal Fernanda Ayala.
Cadets traveled to Little Rock on Tuesday, Oct 24 and toured the Camp Robinson Airfield, where they were able to get up-close look at UH-60 Black Hawk and the UH-72 Lakota helicopters. That evening, a highlight of their visit was dinner with CSM(R) Gary Littrell, Medal of Honor recipient and guest speaker at the training session. On Wednesday Oct. 25, the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation conducted the free training for approximately 75 educators from the Arkansas area, who will incorporate the training of leadership and character development into their own schools. The JROTC Cadets presented the colors to open the program.
Littrell invited the cadets to attend his portion of the training, where he spoke on sacrifice and instilling character and patriotism to those he comes in contact with. The cadets were are able to tour the Clinton Library and meet trainers Jason Robbin, Javier Martinez, and Vice President of Education for the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation Cathy Metcalf.
JROTC instructors COL(R) Chad Sparks and CSM(R) Garret Spencer, and JROTC Advisory Board Member John Suit accompanied the cadets to Little Rock.
