our Cadets get the fullexperience of the program.I look forward to seeing each of you on the highground.By the time you receive this newsletter School Year 2011-2012 will havebeen in session for wellover two months. Thatsaid, I am a little late con-gratulating you for a suc-cessful 2010-2011 School Year. I joined the teamduring the middle of theschool year and was im-mediately impressed with the level of commitment Iobserved by the Instruc- tors and Cadets during myinitial travels to the field. Ihad the opportunity to visitseveral high schools in 2
and 6
Brigades. TheCadets and Cadre I metduring those visits wereabsolutely phenomenaland set the bar pretty highfor future visits. I have nodoubt however, that fol-low-on visits to future highschools will be equallyimpressive. My first ninemonths as the Directorwere fast paced and ac- tion packed, but one thing came across LOUD andCLEAR during thosemonths - there is no better
 team than you “To Moti-
vate Young People to be
Better Citizens.”
As we execute our mission this school year, I ask thatyou apply the same levelof commitment to ourCadets and program asyou did last year. The key to successfully preparing 
our Cadets to meet life’s
future challenges is toensure we execute a bal-anced program.

adversities to succeedwhether in their originaldream or a new dream.Quarterbacks includeAdam Taliaferro; an in- jured football player givena 3% chance of walking again, Rocky Bleier; a pro-football player who lost hisfoot in the Vietnam warand returned to profes-sional football, and Beth-any Hamilton. She is aprofessional surfer whoseleft arm was bitten off by ashark. She was deter-mined to surf profession-ally again. The movie
