from commanders to photographers to musicians. During this they worked as
groups or "squadrons" in several different hands on activities and experiences
while learning the importance of teamwork and cooperation in the military.

cleaning water, the history of why American entered WW1 and WW2 and
how technology influences war. Each student received a dog tag with their
