Monty McDaniel, adult JROTC instructor, offers words of encouragement. All 91 participating cadets managed to master the 30-foot wall, and 72 conquered the monster 60-foot wall.

During fall break, Oct. 12 – 20, BHS cadets participated in the battalion’s annual camping trip in Sonoita. They also came in second out of eight schools during the 2nd Annual Southeast Arizona Orienteering Championship, another event that took place during the break.

 
LRC-Log
On Oct. 15, about 70 JROTC cadets participated in the challenging Leadership Reaction Course, or LRC, on Fort Huachuca. The LRC forces cadets to think outside the box and depend on teammates to accomplish the mission. Here, the purpose was to get the heavy log and every person across the water without either dropping the log or losing a teammate to the water.

 
food-drive
From Oct. 28 – Nov. 1, the Buena High School JROTC cadets participated in a nationwide community service initiative to collect food for the hungry. This year, members of the five companies of Buena’s JROTC program collected 1,273 items. Company B (pictured) collected 410 food items defeating the four other companies by collecting the most food. The Buena High School International Thespian Society will deliver the food to the Forgach House crisis shelter which offers temporary housing for women escaping abusive situations.
