Union Junior ROTC Wins Big at 2014 US Army Cadet Command National Drill Championships


Union High School Junior ROTC “Maroon Guard” wins its first Army Nationals title in the Armed category at Louisville, KY on April 5, 2014.  After two years of finishing in second place Union achieved its goal of placing first in the country.  Maroon Guard Commanders C/Maj. Daryll Henson, C/CSM Tiago Teixeira, C/SGM Aaron Magras and C/1SG Vincent Francis trained the team to be razor sharp in four events: Inspection, Regulation, Color Guard and Exhibition (fancy) drill. Months of practice and drill paid off when Union placed 2nd in Inspection, 4th in Regulation, 2nd in Color Guard, and had a very strong finish in exhibition.  Union’s total score secured a 1st Place overall in the Armed category and earned Union Junior ROTC top honors over forty other competing schools.

The Army Nationals is the largest and finest Army-only competition held anywhere. Only the best JROTC programs are selected to attend the competition. The event is designed to host roughly 1,000 cadets & instructors and showcases many of the finest drill programs in the world of Army JROTC drill. There are four team events and the scores for each are combined for an overall winner.

The Unit Inspection event involves cadets and a Cadet Commander standing inspection in front of four event judges who will look for any and every imperfection. Both Regulation and Color Guard drills are comprised of graded, memorized movements performed in sequence for judge evaluation. The Exhibition Drill allows units to perform both unarmed and armed movements left to the imagination of the drill team. This is a military competition with military judges therefore the displays require precision military movements and formations in this championship event.

Junior ROTC is designed to teach high school students the value of citizenship, leadership, service to the community, and personal responsibility, while instilling in them self-esteem, teamwork and self-discipline.
