Basic Cadet Training / Cadet Leadership Course

Congratulations to the cadets who successfully passed the 2018 Cadet Leadership Course. We know you will all be excellent leaders for the Wisconsin Army Cadets.

Congratulations to the new cadets who successfully completed the 2018 Basic Cadet Training in October. We welcome you to our cadet family.

On Sunday, October 28, we wrapped up Basic Cadet Training and Cadet Leadership Course 2018. There were 11 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 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. Cadets passed the rigorous tests and they are now looking forward to taking leadership positions within the cadet program.
