“The soldier is the Army. No Army is better than its soldiers. The soldier is also a citizen. In fact, the highest obligation and privilege of citizenship is that of bearing arms for one’s country.” – George S Patton

Green Blue Bowl...Here’s what happened: ARMY WINS AGAIN!! Keeping the streak alive, but not without a strong, respectable fight from Air Force.

Blazer Battalion battled against the Iron Warriors yet again in the Blue Green Bowl, which consists of seven events. Ruck relay, pull ups, litter carry race, sprint relay, mental challenge, tug of war, and the ULTIMATE tie breaker. With a 3-3 score, ultimate frisbee was the final event and put Army ROTC on top!

Thanks to everyone who made this happen, showed, competed, and just cheered along! Featured in the first pic are three people from each side that really helped this event happen.

This weekend we sent off these strong cadets to compete in the Norwegian Foot March at Camp Shelby! An Army Strong group the Blazer Battalion is proud to claim as its own.

Originating in 1915 for the purpose of exposing civilians and new military recruits to what it is like to be in the field. It has since evolved as a Foreign Service badge earned by completing the foot march to standard.

Cadets had to complete the 18.6 mile ruck in under 4 hours and 30 minutes to receive the badge.

What an honor and privilege the Blazer Battalion had to commission these 9 deserving Lieutenants today.

Their poise during these special moments and in the face of adversity these past 2-4 years have been nothing short of incredible and inspiring.

The Army is a better place with each of you in it. Go Blazers! 🐉🇺🇸
