My basic goals for the Battalion this year are to teach cadets about the military instruction that ties in with citizenship and leadership, and also to inspire greatness in others as well as myself. I love to do physical training, and with that I participate in Raider Team, and other PT Teams. I also do Marksmanship, along with Color Guard as well, in Color Guard I am the Right Guard.
