This Thursday CDT’s Brendan McNulty and PJ Velcamp were awarded the Patrick J. Breheny Scholarship through the Stillman school of business. This scholarship was created by a Seton Hall Alumnus to give business and ROTC students the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others.
Yesterday morning Pirate Battalions MS4’s led our MS3’s through a CWST (combat water survival test). This is a test that all cadets are required to take to commission as a Second Lieutenant. It is done to test their abilities to swim and dive while in combat. The event shown is the don and ditch in which they have to get out of a flight load carrier while under water as this weighs them down making it harder to swim.

Today the MS4’s took control of PT and taught the battalion how to climb a rope using the J-hook and S-hook methods. This a basic warrior task that they will use in their future at camp and later in their career as an officer in the Army!
Over this past weekend some of Pirate Battalions cadets helped the Northern NJ JROTC host a drill team competition at Woodbridge High School. Our cadets have many chance to learn drill and ceremony and this was chance for them to help JROTC cadets improve on their knowledge with some good competition.
