WIESBADEN, GERMANY -- In this past year, we have experienced challenges we never had thought to encounter. Through the COVID19 pandemic, our world that once moved so fast, came to a screeching halt. The Warrior Battalion faced the challenge of a virtual environment and made it the best of it. With lots of hard work, we improvised, adapted, overcame and proceeded in the virtual learning environment! The Warrior Battalion remains committed to staying healthy which means remaining active - and leading through the virtual platform of Google Classroom as if in person learning.

Our LET III and LET IV cadets have risen to the test and have developed some new, fun, and inventive ways to engage, and encourage cadets in the physical readiness training. The upper level cadets are leading virtual PRT sessions of all consolidate cadets in a single session every Friday.

Lieutenant Colonel Ring, the SAI, commented on our virtual PRT, “It may be a little difficult staying exactly with the count, but we’re having fun with it – and all Cadets are learning and growing through the challenge!”

The Warrior Battalion has also continued to recruit within the school and welcome new students and cadets to our program.

We are constantly working to motivate young cadets to become better student athletes, leaders and overall better citizens.
