On Sunday, October 25, we wrapped up Basic Cadet Training and Cadet Leadership Course 2015. There were 8 new recruits that arrived on Thursday night anxious to begin their journey with the cadets. After a long, grueling weekend of classes, PT exams, learning to march, and more, the 8 recruits graduated and earned the rank of Private. 

Friday night, current cadets began the Cadet Leadership Course, where they attended multiple classes and continued to work on leadership skills. Six cadets passed the rigorous tests and they are now looking forward to taking leadership positions within the cadet program. 

The cadets will also be under new leadership beginning in November. After several months of training, tests, interviews, presentations, and a board review a new 1st Sergeant was chosen. Congratulations to C/SGT Marquardt on your new position. While Plamann will tranisition to C/MSGT he will be with the cadets until January 2016. Joining C/MSGT Plamann, C/SSG Zajakowski will be transitioning to another position as well. We thank them for their dedication and service to the program. Whatever roads they may travel, we wish them well and will welcome their visits.

My Time in the WIAC

By Cadet Jackson

I joined the unit for many reasons. When I was growing up my brothers went off to war and I looked to them as my heroes. My dad was another big help in this he was a an E6 and served for 21 years.

I joined the WIAC to learn about some of the things they went through, the training, the teamwork and so much more. Without this program I wouldn’t have developed my leadership skills. I would not have met this new family and my friends. Sure we have our ups and downs, but that’s family.  We improvise, adapt, and overcome.
