In The Know

Questions and/or RSVP

The Alumni Mingle was held on March 28th in Myrtle Beach, SC. We had 3 decades of Alumni represented. The combined knowledge was extraordinary as they discussed the differences in their collective memory. The change in the weapons they practiced with to the fact that the younger generations of alumni did not get to use live ammo or fire off the small cannon in the front of alumni hall. During the 60s and 70s all the Cadets prepared for inspection on Saturday morning. For at least twenty years the inspections were held at the same time, 10 AM.

Each Month ORMA will hold an Alumni Mingle to offer former Cadets a place reconnect with classmates and make new friends. ORMA has changed the trajectory of many lives over the years. Come share your stories about life at The Ridge.

Next Mingle: April 29th Hickory Tavern Pinehurst, NC at 7PM
