December 9-11, 2021, marked a return to outstanding field trips for Piedmont JROTC, with a trip by 30 cadets to Dayton & Cincinatti, Ohio. It was their first out-of-state field trip since 2019. Prior to COVID, the unit had went on trips to Norfolk VA, Boston, MA, New York City, and many other such places. In Dayton, the cadets got to explore the National USAF Museum, the largest and oldest aviation museum in the world and went to a Cincinatti Cyclones hockey game, a first for many of the students. Cadets camped at Camp Kern YMCA, where they had a bonfire with smores and participated in other camping fun activities. Storms hit the final night of the trip, leaving the camp a soggy mess, but overall, it was an amazing time for both students and chaperones!
