SAN ANTONIO, TX -- Thomas Jefferson JROTC from San Antonio, TX, participated in their annual Community Parade/Pass and Review Ice Cream Social to kick off the new school year. The Ice Cream social is a tradition that goes back since the early 1940s. The main purpose besides free ice cream, is for all the organizations to announce their leadership for the school year, declare goals for the school year, and for some organizations to show off what they have been practicing to the Jefferson Community. Pictured are both Drill Teams: Crimson Brigade Unarmed & Crimson Guard Armed Drill Teams performed a Tandem Exhibition performance for the Jefferson Community. Also, a few LOTC Cadets from Longfellow Middle School, feeder school to Jefferson, were allowed to march in front of the Jefferson Corps of Cadets.
