    ROTC Cadets visit West Point and NYC

    Air Force Junior ROTC students from Piedmont and Porter Ridge High Schools in Union County recently visited New York State where they toured the West Point Military Academy and New York City. Students were tasked with homework assignments that they would brief at each stop on the jam-packed four day tour. Several of the 50 students in attendance had the opportunity to present their topics on the bus ride to and from New York. "Sometimes it is just too noisy for the students to be heard trying to brief a large group on a busy Manhattan street," said Captain Louis Werder, the Senior AFJROTC Instructor at Piedmont High School. The student briefings on the World Trade Center, Freedom Tower and the 911 Memorial were accompanied by a 911 documentary.
