Keenan JROTC cadets compete in all types of drill meets. Drill meets are the competitions in which cadets from all over compete against one another. The activities they compete in are where one cadet calls a series of commands while the team executes them. One specific drill meet Keenan cadets competed in was the District Drill Competition. The drill meet was held on December 5, 2016, at the McEntire Air National Guard Base.

“I have faith in my cadets and trust that they would get the job done,” MSG John Roberts, JROTC instructor, said.

At drill meets the cadets/leaders have to call a series of commands.

“They know their commands, and they know them well,” Junior Brianna Mickens, subordinate cadet who has to execute the commands, said.

Some of the drill meets are far away, and it may take some time getting there.

Some students may think the ride there will be somewhat enjoyable, but on the contrary, it’s really long and tedious.

“I don’t like going, but I do enjoy participating when I get there,” Junior Titiana Anderson, staff member, said.
