On November 30th, 2018, The War Eagle Battalion cadets went to the Indian Country Club Preserve to attend Military Ball. When the event started, cadets went either alone or with a date under a Saber Arch to take a photo then went into a receiving line to greet people such as: LTC Whalen, Mrs. Whalen, Mrs. Negron, Mrs. Miller, etc. After cadets were seated by companies, the formal part of the event began with C/Major Howell introducing C/CPL Schumacher to sing the National Anthem. Afterwards, the Color Guard honored the colors and had special guest speaker 2LTBernenda Marc speak about how she enlisted into the National Guard and what she does now. The cadet’s payed tribute to the fallen soldiers while C/CPT McKeon set a table dedicated to them. Cadets gave a toast to all branches of the military, POWs/MIAs, the guest of honor, and to the ladies. Then, the youngest and oldest cadet in the program used a saber to cut the cake to represent the new coming people and older people leaving. When the formal event ended, cadets lined up to eat dinner then enjoyed the rest of their night with dancing.
