EVHS and Georgetown High School students—members of the Liberty Battalion—participated in the daylong event, which includes uniform and drill inspections, as well as inspection questions.
Cadets are inspected by local recruiters—this year by Commander Mike Hale, Naval ROTC Area Ten manager, EVHS senior Zach Carden said. The battalion is divided into nine platoons based on class schedule, said Carden, who is also the NJROTC commanding officer.
“Every unit in the U.S. goes through [inspection],” Carden said.
The Georgetown NJROTC program has been a Navy Distinguished Unit eight years in a row as well as a 2019 state qualifier, according to the district website.
The program is ran by senior naval science instructor Capt. Craig Anthony.
