NJROTC Cadets Excel Again at 2020 Annual Military Inspection

On Thursday, November 19, NJROTC prepared for the event they trained for all year. At the start of the day for our 53rd Annual Military Inspection, cadets arrived excited and nervous. In a normal year, the Area 8 Manager, CDR Ladner, would inspect all of the programs associated with our unit. Due to current restrictions, NJROTC headquarters asked district superintendents to conduct the inspection. Mr. Greg Rando ’77, President of Brother Martin High School, and Principal Ryan Gallagher ’00 stood ready at second period to meet our first platoon. Each cadet stood a personnel inspection and were graded on the proper wear and cleanliness of the uniform, military knowledge, and precision of military drill. Throughout the day, each class period performed exceptionally. 

In the afternoon, the senior staff led by Cadet Lt. Cmdr. Avery Broussard ’21 presented an overview of the unit goals and status to Mr. Rando and Mr. Gallagher. Every aspect of the cadet run program, including the leadership goals of all the senior staff officers. The operations officer, Cadet Lt. Cameron Donewar ’21 led the discussion of all the teams and introduced our Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (drone) program. The inspecting party then reviewed the inventory of the more than $200,000 of military uniforms and property that the cadet Supply Department manages. Led by Cadet Lieutenant Junior Grade Artie Dagoglou ’21, the spot check resulted in 100% accountability for all items. The Administrative Officer, Cadet Lieutenant Junior Grade Cody Estrade ’21 demonstrated the Navy’s database that provides records of all cadets and property. 

As soon as the last bell rang, cadets lined up in the backyard for the final event, the Review of Troops. The Command Master Chief, Cadet Master Chief Petty Officer Race Skrmetta ’21, called the formation to fall in and reported to the Commanding Officer. The Adjutant, Cadet Lt. Nicholas Lemoine ’21 called the line to attention to welcome the official party. The highlight of the ceremony was a military drill demonstration by a platoon of first year cadets led by Cadet Seaman Apprentice William Pejic ’25. The Armed Drill Team then performed a two man routine with Cadet Ens. Christian Schneller ’22 and Cadet Petty Officer First Class Zack Rochon ’22. Just before the final pass in review, Mr. Rando and Mr. Gallagher recognized a group of cadets for performing above and beyond their peers during the inspection. The Naval Science Instructors, Cmdr. Bruce Nolan ’90 and Sr. Chief Romico Barnes, recognized the best platoon of the day, 1st platoon led by Cadet Ens. Christian Scheller and Cadet Chief Petty Officer Marc Graffeo ’22. The platoon of the quarter went to the 2nd platoon led by Cadet Ens. Eric Wickboldt ’21 and Cadet Chief Petty Officer Collin Blackwell ’21.

“You should be proud of everything you accomplished today,” said Mr. Gallagher while addressing the cadets. “You demonstrated what it means to be a Crusader.”
