ROTC

On Thursday, August 22, Hueneme NJROTC cadets participated in the Freshman Orientation, which showcased the upcoming class of 2023.

Before the presentation began, the unit color guards presented colors during the pledge of allegiance and national anthem.  Later in the presentation, the unit instructors, commanding officer, and executive officer discussed the NJROTC program. 

When the freshmen were shown around the school, we had cadets in the room presenting slideshow for them as well as had a booth by the gym.
