Herndon High School freshmen who are joining the school’s Navy Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps learned all about the program last week during a New Cadet Introductory Course camp.

The incoming cadets learned how to march, how to wear and care for their uniforms, and how to handle a rifle among other valuable lessons. In addition, they participated in community service, including a cleanup of Dranesville Road near the school.

Students also learned the importance of physical fitness as a cadet, including through completion of an obstacle course.

Awards were presented to the top-performing cadets for academics, drill and physical fitness during the orientation course.
