The team would like to give a special thank you to Major Rob Forde for supporting us during all of our drill competitions. He has been to all our team competitions this year to ensure pictures are taken for the ORMA, the Corps, and the yearbook. He had volunteered to transport our team members when we were short on space to take them. This weekend he volunteered to drive the team to North Brunswick High School Tri-meet, three hours, and a half away from Oak Ridge. He has never waived or complained about the distances or times the drill team takes him away from his home.
Major Forde, the Team, and 1SG McCullough truly appreciate all you have done for us this year. We know you really care for our Cadets.
