The Air Force ROTC Detachment 028 Honor Corps returned from the Southern California Invitational Drill Meet (SCIDM) victorious again this year, the win reflecting their long hours of practice.
The Honor Corps typically practices multiple hours each day, most days per week, training to become the best at drill, rifle, and saber displays of professionalism.
The Corps came home with 1st place trophies in the Drill, Rifle, and Overall categories of the competition.
Honor Corps Commander Cadet Roberto Amaya believes their hard work has all been worthwhile in preparing for the competition:
“Cadet [Jillian] Green and I are extremely proud of this group of extraordinary individuals! They put in a lot of hard work and hours preparing for SCIDM and we can definitely say that it all paid off. We’d like to thank our AFROTC cadre who took time out of their schedules to come out during practices and accompany us to SCIDM, we can’t thank you enough! Cadet Green and I look forward to more accomplishments and achievements these cadets will bring to the Honor Corps, the detachment, ERAU, and the U.S. Air Force!” he said.
Congratulations to the Det 028 Honor Corps; your hard work and professionalism has paid off!
