On Thursday March 28th fourteen Cadets from Halsey Academy in New Jersey along with their Senior Marine Instructor Colonel Bob Golden (ret.) and Marine Instructor Gunnery Sergeant Jeffries (ret.) visited some of our MCJROTC Cadets. During the visit Cadets had a chance to meet and greet as they talked about their experiences in MCJROTC and life in general. During the visit we also had a mini marksmanship competition with six competitors from both schools. They shot in the kneeling, prone, and standing positions. The Halsey Cadets came out on top when the final results were tabulated. Afterwards each of the Cadets shook hands as our Cadets congratulated them on their victory. All in all it was a memorable experience for everyone involved. The Cadets enjoyed the competition and learning a little about each other. Halsey Cadets were appreciative of the hospitality we showed them. Afterwards they loaded up into their Vans and headed to the Naval Academy.
